Laura Walker and Gillian Olivia Blythe Hamel 

When: Wed., Sept. 12, 6:30-8 p.m. 2012

It's a linguistic face-off, as Laura Walker goes up against Geoffrey Nunburg for the title of most-alphabetically-inspired-book of the week. Walker used the Oxford Old English Dictionary's Volume VI as inspiration for her new book of poems -- specifically, the volume covering FOLLOW-HASWED, which is also the name of her book. Joining her is Gillian Olivia Blythe Hamel, poet and St. Mary's graduate who edits at Omnidawn Publishing and manages its online magazine,OmniVerse. On Wednesday, Sept. 12, at University Press Books (2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley). 6:30 p.m., free. 510-548-0585 or
