On Saturday, September 15, Foundlings will present a lineup of visiting and local poets in the Cantina @ Duende (Silo City’s indoor/outdoor bar): Amber Nelson (Seattle), Jen Ashburn (Pittsburgh), Jason Irwin (Pittsburgh), and Noah Falck (Buffalo). The event is free and open to the public, with an offering of drinks and light fare, books on sale, and a large yard, all under the most iconic and inspiring features of the Buffalo skyline.
