George Wallace

Tomorrow night, August 16, 2012 (7:00 sign up; 7:30 start), the Poetry Motel Foundation presents the Third Thursday Poetry Night at the Social Justice Center, 33 Central Ave., Albany, NY with an open mic before & after the featured performer . There is a $3.00 donation, suggested; more if you got it, less if you can’t. This great, long running, poetry series is hosted by poet ~ peacenik Dan Wilcox.

George Wallace was Suffolk County’s first poet laureate and is now the writer-in-residence at the Walt Whitman Birthplace State Historic Site and Interpretive Center in Huntington, Long Island.  George was here for the Walt Whitman Birthday reading of “Song of  Myself.”  A recent book is “Incident on the Orient Express” (Nirala Publicatons, 2012).
