Poetry Open Mic Night
Wednesday October 25, 2017
6:00 PM until 7:30 PM
The library hosts a monthly poetry series with an open mic. Each month there will be a featured poet followed by a discussion, an open mic and light refreshments. Lainie Senechal, Amesbury Poet Laureate, hosts this event.
The October featured poet will be Son Rivers. He has been enjoying poetry since he was a very young Greg Perry. Besides reading and writing it, he has work-shopped and taught it, read it at open mics, often as a featured reader, published it in journals and books, and won some awards for it. He has transcreated the works of others such as Cold Mountain, Lal Ded, the Kena Rishi, and Lao Tzu. He has even edited the two million words of Thoreau’s Journals into a transcendental day book. Nonduality has his attention these days and his recent poems reflect the topic. Most importantly, he has been enjoying long trips to Virginia lately, visiting his lovely eight-month old granddaughter. He will read from his new collection,‘Rivers in Wonderland’, which is dedicated his granddaughter.
