In Shakespeare's Hamlet, the titular character tells his friend Horatio that "there are more things in heaven and earth ... Than are dreamt of in your philosophy." Ironically, dreams have sailed where philosophy has sputtered at showing the true colors of the world and the elegance of experience. Enter poet Mathias Svalina, who will be in Boise in September with his Dream Delivery Service. During his stay, subscribers to DDS will receive poems written specially for them by Svalina himself—part of a traveling service he has provided in many cities already. Before his arrival with a celebration from the Sema Reading Series at Neckar Coffee on Saturday, July 27, as poets and illustrators put dreams to ink and paper, check out of Svalina's previous works and sit in for dream-poem readings from local poets.

5-7 p.m. By donation. Neckar Coffee, 117 S. 10th St., Boise, facebook.com/semaboise.
