Houston writer Carol Louise Munn is the first guest poet of the year at the First Friday Poetry Reading Series. My job is to select and prepare work that I hope will matter to my audience, says Munn, who writes about the ordinary, tragic, lost, betrayed, exuberant realities or possibilities that might yet be. See what she means when she says, the exotic comes easy; the ordinary is hard. 8:30 p.m. Inprint House, 1520 West Main.
