Feed Your Head

21825578.jpgIt's not every day you see the words "prize winning poet" and "pig roast" in the same sentence unless, of course, you're talking about an event like Eating Our Words, an LA-based reading series that comes to Key Biscayne's Boater's Grill on April 1 at 7 p.m. as part of the O, Miami Poetry Festival. For $30 you get to stuff your face at a traditional Cuban pig roast and buffet and feed your head as poet Tracy K. Smith reads. Click here for reservations. Also part of the festival at Vino & Olio, 7 p.m. April 13, Now Taste This, in which food writer/poet Jen Karetnick and poet Nick Vagnoni will read food-centric poems while people eat. And, while he's not part of any food-related poetry events, actor/everyman ad nauseum James Franco will be in town for a festival event on April 28. [EaterWire]
