(1) Hey gang –
Here’s a fun way to catch some of my poetry and do some nice summer socializing to boot.
I’ll be one of four featured readers at the monthly writer’s evening at Downtown Books and News (Malaprop’s used book store) – 67 N. Lexington, Friday, August 10 at 7 p.m. I’ll be offering twelve minutes of poetry – two short fun poems and two long poems that you may know from Jubilee or from my poetry book: Scrupulosity (“I look around me at the ruins of my room…”) and Something New (“I am old, this life is old….from where might come something new?”). Hey, if you know ’em already, they’ll go down different this time around.
I don’t know who the other writers are, but Jesse from the store (and from Greenlife) who sets these things up works really hard to book crowd-pleasers.
You’ll be out of there by 8:15 – lots of time to do something else with your evening or to join me and my new friend Elizabeth at some downtown establishment for a beverage. Hope you can come!
Majo John Madden
