National Poetry Month is about to come to a close, but there’s still time to celebrate. Poets Al Abonado, Ralph Black, and Lytton Smith will read from their work this week at literary-themed bar Nox. The event also serves as a launch party for Black’s newest book, “Bloom and Laceration,” and Smith’s new illustrated chapbook, “My Radar Data Knows Its Thing.” Copies of each will be available for purchase, and Nox is offering its “Criminally Addictive Chickpeas” appetizer for free to anyone who signs up for their mailing list.
The poetry reading and book launch takes place Saturday April 28, at 7 p.m. at Nox (302 North Goodman Street). Free. 471-8803; noxcocktail.com.
