I thank everyone for their ongoing support of my writing and literary career. I’ll hold another reading at Ray’s Happy Birthday Bar, 1200 East Passyunk Avenue is South Philadelphia, on Monday, August 26, 2019, at 6:00 PM. (https://www.thehappybirthdaybar.com/ ) There I’ll read my poems, have my books for sale, and I’ll tell about my life and my work. I look forward to seeing all of you then.
This evening, my friends at A Novel Idea on Passyunk, 1726 E. Passyunk Avenue (https://anovelideaphilly.com/) will hold a poetry reading at the Lucky 13 Pub, 1830 South 13th street in South Philadelphia (https://anovelideaphilly.com/ ) Please come and watch fine area poets-like me-read their material.
every first Monday of the Month, the Parkway Central Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia (http://freelibrary.org) holds its Monday Poets Reading Series; last night I took part in an open reading, along with other fine regional poets. The next reading, on May 6, will be on the theme “Whitman@200: Art and Democracy,” featuring Leonard Gontarek and poets from the Poetry in Common Workshop. Please look into this, and please support your local libraries and other educational venues.
