E. V. reports seeing a sign announcing a “Poetry Event” on the McDonald’s in Raleigh. Could that event be related to this (from the North Carolina Writer’s Network News Letter):

Signed Books Needed for Ronald McDonald House Fundraiser

The Writers’ Network is calling on members to contribute signed copies of their books for a fundraising auction Friday, February 3, at the Washington Duke Inn to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Durham. Please send signed books to: Ms. Lisa Lambert, Special Events Director, Ronald McDonald House of Durham, 506 Alexander Ave., Durham, NC 27705. Include your name, address, value of the book, and a memo stating the auction item is from the N.C. Writers’ Network. A receipt will be forwarded for your records. To request an invitation to the wine tasting and auction, e-mail specialevents@ronaldhousedurham.org.

Or is it, as Tanya Olsen suggests, the work of Langston Fuze?
