On Saturday, October 20, poets and friends will gather at the great Colony Cafe for an open mic with featured readers Adrianna Delgado and marina mati. This makes for a very busy day for host Phillip Levine as he will be hosting the COW reading later on the evening of October 20th in Kingston.

It included Speakeasy on MacDougal Street where she eventually inherited the reins from Mindy Slater and, with Debra Allen, hosted and produced that series. They featured such poets as Hal Sirowitz and Sapphire. Residing in Orange County, NY since ’98, marina mati has featured at major venues throughout the Hudson Valley.

She’s earned her way through life as a waitress, cook and baker, an office worker and delivery person for exotic fruit. Also as assistant manager at Starbuck’s in NYC, her record for caffeine intoxication was four double espressos a day with whipped cream. She now works in the area’s favorite health food store and drinks decaf.
She most enjoys reading her work for an audience and is also an actress recently involved in staged readings of new plays by the talented Lisa Kimble.
In great appreciation for all the venues and hosts that keep poetry alive in the Hudson Valley.
