TRP Poet Peter Carlaftes kicks off 2010 Gazebo Reading Series

Three Rooms Press poet Peter Carlaftes—whose poetry is “filled with drop-dead humor, searing insight and resilient originality, even while resonating with overtones of Bukowski, Baudelaire and Bogart”—will help launch the 2010 Summer Gazebo Reading Series, June 7, 7pm, at the Gazebo on Schoolhouse Green in Oceanside, Long Island, New York.

Each Monday throughout the Summer, four published poets and authors are selected to read at the series, which is hosted by Tony Iovino. For the June 7 reading, Carlaftes will be joined by poets Tom Phelan, Barbara Ann Branca, and Christine O'Hagan. The readings are held on Schoolhouse Green which is located on Foxhurst Road, Oceanside, New York (just east of Long Beach Road). Directions can be found here.

Carlaftes is celebrating the upcoming release of his first full-length poetry collection, DrunkYard Dog (156 pages, Three Rooms Press, 2010, 978-0-9840700-4-6). Copies of the book will be available at the performance.
