The Poets Speak Loud open mic series continues at McGeary’s in downtown Albany on Monday, October 29, with featured reader Dave Kime.
Dave Kime is a US Army veteran who believes that the true path to freedom stems from activism and standing up against corporate power, and not sending armies to invade and manipulate the world’s poor. Dave has been reading poetry throughout the Hudson Valley since 1992, having read at anti-war rallies that have featured Pete Seeger and Maurice Hinchey. Dave honed a lot of his work at Rip’s Café in Saugerties and would later run a successful open reading called Freedom of Speech on Partition Street for two years. He is the author of the chapbook OBLIQUE, aided by the artwork of Jean Tansey and is currently a Trustee and Historian for the Delaware and Hudson Canal Museum in High Falls.
Dave lives in Woodstock NY with the love of his life Marianna and their pets Couper, Sputnick and Corky.
