The Over-the-Rhine-based nurturer of the written word hosts local poet Richard Hague’s dramatic reading of “Where Drunk Men Go,” a title sure to pique the interest of curious women across the Tristate (word is that Hague was inspired to write the piece after hearing fellow poet Jenny Galloway Collins complain about “wherever it is that drunk men go.” Per the title, it’s no surprise that Hague’s poem, which appears in his acclaimed book Alive in Hard Country, explores “ecstasy, despair and spiritual survival” and “unflinchingly presents the exhilaration of drink and the agonies of abuse.” Hague’s reading will be accompanied by the Bluegrass and Gospel stylings of Michael Henson, himself a fine poet. 7:30 p.m. Friday at InkTank’s headquarters on 1311 Main St. $10; free for InkTank members.
