The best part of it all? Performers will get a free glass of cider on the house! We will open the doors of our tasting room at 7:00PM for signups and libation enjoyment for those who love good wine and cider.

Antisymmetrical Palindromes in Traditional European and Contemporary Russian Poetry. Palindrome Semiotics. A Chronotope of Revolution: The Palindrome from the Perspective of Cultural Semiotics By Erika Greber (Univ. of Munich / UC Irvine) In the following abstract, I propose to analyze the palindrome in terms of cultural semiotics and to explore the subliminal semantic concepts and metaphorological implications which are involved in the genre's postmodern renaissance and which articulate certain political anxieties (something which applies especially to the recent rise of palindrome writing and criticism in Russian, German and Serbo-Croatian literatures).

Doc Drumheller10 × (10 + −10) = 0 The Republic of Oma Rāpeti Press, 2014 200 pp. $30 (N.Z.) New Zealand poet Doc Drumheller’s new book, the trickily titled 10 × (10 + −10) = 0, is part conceptual mindbender, part highly-charged political rant.
