Thomas Fucaloro writes with a madness all his own that shines spectacular. His recently released debut poetry collection, "Inheriting Craziness is Like a Soft Halo of Light" (Three Rooms Press) showcases his intensity with 57 poems that slice through facade and illuminate an indefatigable inner spirit. According to Emily Kagan Trenchard, curator of the louderARTS Project, "Thomas Fucaloro's particular gift is to harness the crazed wisdom at the bottom of the bottle, to scrape a fleck of beauty from the underside of a binge, and to call madness by a name so familiar we can't help but recognize it in ourselves."
Opening for Fucaloro will be spotlight poet Amy Leigh Cutler, author of the book "Orange Juice and Rooftops" and the chapbook "American Woman."
The featured readings follow the fabulous Son of a Pony open reading at the cafe. Poet/convivial mistress of ceremonies Kat Georges hosts. Doors open at 5:45 p.m.; the open reading begins at 6 p.m. Admission is $7, which includes a free drink.
