Carol H. Jewell

Poet Carol H. Jewell will read from her work at the Social Justice Center, 33 Central Ave., Albany on Thursday, November 19, 2015 at 7:30PM.

Carol is a poet, teacher, musician, librarian, MFA student, and grandmother of the FABULOUS Charlie. She is insatiably curious, which is why she reads everything: newspapers, novels, poems, poems, poems, the backs of cereal boxes, painting instructions from Home Depot, and, of course, Facebook.

A reading by a local or regional poet is held each Third Thursday at the Social Justice Center.  The event includes an open mic for audience members to read.  Sign-up starts at 7:00PM, with the reading beginning at 7:30.  The host of the readings is Albany poet and photographer Dan Wilcox.  The suggested donation is $3.00, which helps support this and other poetry programs of the Poetry Motel Foundation, and the work of the Social Justice Center.  For more information about this event contact Dan Wilcox, 518-482-0262 or
