The event will incorporate randomly chosen interview cassette minute (usually at the expense of the author’s dignity), the collective making of a found poem from Bee Thousand lyric fragments using the Tzara Dada method of anti- lyric composition, the playing of a few Bee Thousand-era rarities, and a full-size anagram contest (prix d’honneur for the winner), sing-alongs, and giveaways of home-made, lovingly decorated, lo-fi indexes to those who buy the book or bring their tattered, smudged and dog-eared copies.
