A few months ago, I posted about a wonderful and inspiring poetry and jazz night that took place at the AFA Gallery in Scranton. The second poetry and jazz night is set to take place tonight, from 6-9 p.m. at the AFA Gallery again. The event is part of the weekly drawing social series that occurs at the gallery, so if you come, feel free to bring art to work on, or writing. If you don’t want to do that, then you can just enjoy the music and the poets.
The cost to attend is $5 for the general public, and $2 for students. The featured readers include Rich Howells, Tom Allen, Maureen McGuigan, and I. The musicians include Tom Allen on woodwinds, Chelsea Smarr on harp, Bob Ventrello on percussion, Doug Smith on acoustic bass, Ron Stabinsky on piano, and Julian Sparacino on saxophone and flute.
This should prove to be another great event, and one that mixes different artistic mediums, which is a great way to share poetry with a broader audience. After tonight, there should be another poetry and jazz reading in two months or so.
