SON OF A PONY POETRY SERIES
Featured poet: JANE ORMEROD
Spotlight poet: ELLIOTT D. SMITH
PLUS NYC's Best Open POETRY Mike: Hosted by Kat Georges
Jane Ormerod is the author of the full-length poetry collection, Recreational Vehicles on Fire (Three Rooms Press, 2009), the chapbook 11 Films (Modern Metrics, 2008), and the spoken word CD Nashville Invades Manhattan. Born in England, she now lives in New York City and performs extensively across the United States and beyond - San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, Britain, Canada, Ireland, and The Netherlands to name just a few places. She is a founding editor at Uphook Press.
Elliott D. Smith reps Louisville, Cincinnati, and Brooklyn. When he's not working with formerly incarcerated people or conducting research on masculinity, he drinks whiskey and talks too loudly. He believes in the power of tattoos, reference books, and matching music with the weather.
The featured reading follows the fabulous Son of a Pony open reading at the cafe. Poet/ecstatic madame/curator 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.
