January Castalia rang in the New Year in the best of ways. First year Kristine Greive gave us snippets of a life lived with nausea and a plastic bag always at hand. Fellow first year Matt Perez gave us a moving story based on family experiences. Second year Kate Lebo charmed our ears with her pie poems and our bellies with her warm pie that she served at intermission. Poet and alum Matthew Nienow impressed us after the break with some of his newer work that taught us something about fatherhood and boat-building. Our own Pimone Triplett rounded out the evening with wonderful poems about refrigerators and Now and Laters (or is it Now or Laters?).
