Potluck and poetry returns to the Pine Hollow Arboretum in Slingerlands on Friday, July 11 with featured reader Edie Abrams for the Poets of Earth, Water, Tree and Sky open mic.
Edie is a main stay of the local poetry community. Co-host of Sunday Four Poetry Open Mic, workshops with Bernadette Mayers, attends William Christman Tribute, member of Rootdrinker Institute and attends many of Pine Hollow Open Mics including August Poets at The Arboretum special event.
Edie Abrams’ poetry shows a broad perception of personality, roots, humor and word craft. I call her our Ogden Nash (Which she doesn’t particularly like by-the-way. “I am not that humorous” she says. It is the playfulness of language, I say.)
– Alan Casline
The reading begins at 6:30PM, right after the potluck which starts at 6:00PM.
The Open Mic for writers and poets will be offered as usual. Poets can read three short poems or two longer poems or two pages of prose will be acceptable. There will be light refreshments offered. Donations welcomed. Contact Alan Casline at email@example.com for more information.
