I wondered if any of you noticed billy has a book (deal?) in the works...a friend told me he was doing a poetry reading at the art institute in chicago on sept. 17 and under his description it reads: "Billy Corgan is the singer and songwriter of the band ZWAN, singer and songwriter of the critically acclaimed and internationally celebrated Chicago band The Smashing Pumpkins, and a poet with a book in the works." this piqued my interest and i wondered if any of you hear heard anything about it? what the book would be about, etc.? i havn't followed the pumpkins/billy as closely after they split so i probably missed something that may have been posted awhile ago

Doors open at 6 and it sounds like he'll actually be opening the reading which starts at 6:30 although you know they always make you wait like a half hour..45 minutes...

anyways, something else i read led me to believe that it would be a book of his poetry....so perhaps that's it ("performance of his own poetry...YET to be released)
