6 PM | CORNELIA STREET CAFE
SON OF A PONY POETRY SERIES
The Idiom Poets of New Jersey
Chris McIntyre | Steven McNamara | Mark Brunetti
NYC's Best Open POETRY Mike
Hosted by Kat Georges
Creative and poetically-inspired, The Idiom Magazine is going into its 5th year of publication. It won the London Book Festival: Magazine Category in 2007 and was banned from Rutger's zine festival for obscene material and a 4 1/2 foot paper-mâché volcano which attracted a lot more attention than expected. Behind the Idiom are three poetic forces of nature: Chris McIntyre, Steven McNamara & publisher Mark Brunetti. Each poet has a distinctive voice; together, they make the world vibrate with possibility.
The featured reading follows 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.
Cornelia Street Cafe is at 29 Cornelia Street, between W. 4th Street & Bleecker, just around the corner from the W. 4th Street subway station. Phone: 212-989-9319. www.corneliastreetcafe.com
