Tuesday Funk at the Flourish Bakery, Nov. 11 at 7pm
Please join us for the next installment of Tuesday Funk on Tuesday, November 11th at reading at the Flourish Bakery in Edgewater. Tuesday Funk is a monthly reading that combines poetry, essays and fiction with an emphasis on new work and works in progress. It's free and open to the public. Some of the poets we've hosted are: Kristy Bowen, Jett McAllister, Carl Marcum, Roy Guzman, and Adam Jameson.
This month we're having a special love themed edition of Tuesday Funk. Dancing Girl Press founder Kristy Bowen commissioned fifteen poets to imagine the love letter and sold them boxed together under the title billet-doux The result was something breathtaking, beautiful and full of surprises. Now Kristy and some of those same writers come to Tuesday Funk to share these letters in front of our microphones. Lisbeth Levine, co-author of the The Wedding Book: The Big Book for Your Big Day will share her thoughts on the phenomenon of the contemporary American Wedding. And poet and essayiest Roberta Wilson reflects on the nature of love itself.
