CORGAN PREMIERES POETRY BOOK
BILLY CORGAN, former singer with the SMASHING PUMPKINS, is to premiere his forthcoming poetry book at a multimedia performance on September 17.

Taking place in Corgan's hometown of Chicago, the singer will be opening the Poetry Center of Chicago's 31st Annual Reading Series at the Art Institute of Chicago's Rubloff Auditorium.

As reported on Billboard, the night will be a preview of Corgan's book, and the performance is expected to include singing, reading and playing music.
