Spencer Reece Reading and Film

PENELOPE BASS
4 pm., Saturday March 30 | $5-$10.
Clinton Street Theater
2522 SE Clinton St.
 
You know you’ve really made it once James Franco makes a film about you. But poet Spencer Reece’s other notable accomplishments include winning the Bakeless Prize for his first book, The Clerk’s Tale (in which the title poem recounts his experiences working at Brooks Brothers in the Mall of America and inspired Franco’s short film), becoming a priest in middle age (recounted in his upcoming book of prose, The Little Entrance) and receiving a Fullbright grant to return to Honduras where he teaches poetry at a girls’ orphanage. Reece will read from his upcoming book of poetry, The Road to Emmaus, followed by a screening of Franco’s film.
