Poetry Reading in Philadelphia
When I received this invitation to read for Philadelphia Poets event last November, I knew that 2012 was going to be the year for my writing. What a way to kick it off! Now, if I could figure out what I should read, I'll be all set!
Philadelphia Poets Presents its Annual Ethnic Voices Poetry Reading at the Manayunk/Roxborough Art Center (M/RAC)
This program will feature: Manya Bean, Lynn Blue, Mel Brake, Ashini Desai, Maria Fama, Emiliano Martin, and Al Tacconelli
The poets represent many different cultures—Greek, African-American, Indian, Italian, and Spanish—and while their experiences either as immigrants or the descendants of immigrants are similar, the expressions of their feelings are unique and individual, and their approaches to the writing of poetry, varied and powerful. In some cases, poetry will be read in translation together with the English.
419 Green Lane (rear), Philadelphia
Sunday, February 12, 2012, 3:00 to 5:30 p.m.
