As fall officially starts tomorrow, I’m happy to announce two upcoming events. Tomorrow, Sept. 21, I’m taking part in Jazz-Poetry night at the Old Bricke Theatre in Scranton, located at 126 W. Market St. The event begins at 6 p.m., and I’ll be joined by fellow poets Rich Howell and Scott Thomas. The musicians will be Chelsea Smarr on harp and Jeff Brozena on percussion. I’ve done this event a few times in the past, and it’s always a lot of fun. I’m a fan of any event that combines different art forms.
Next week, Saturday, Sept. 27, I’m taking part in 100 Thousand Poets for Change. This is a global event meant to raise awareness about social justice and environmental issues. I will be taking part in the event outside of Philly, at Souderton Park, which is also not too far from New Hope. My reading will be from 11-11:30 a.m., and the event will run until 6 p.m. and feature poetry and music all day.
