Attending Lancaster Poetry Exchange, for me, feels like something that should be done, because I regularly discover interesting perspectives. Le Hinton, founder of Iris G. Press (a local poetry publishing company), is a Lancaster fixture, is now the facilitator, and I love hearing introductions from these kinds of people - someone I remember from early days of my attendance of readings, when Borders was around.
Linn Levin, and Frank Falcone, were the featured readers, and we heard from at least eight other poets during open mic portion of evening. Subjects ranged: Charles Bukowski, Native American wisdom available only to hearts, seeds, risking being called a creep, Robert Frost’s experience in a snowstorm, Eddie Haskell, and blueberries. We’re lucky to have this rich offering (fourth Wednesdays at Barnes and Noble), in addition to the other monthly gatherings: Dogstar (fourth Wednesday), and BohoZone (PoetryZone is every third Wednesday).
This is an invitation. Come to BohoZone, and then ZoneToo, for PoetryZone 8 (Eliot is featured), and then maybe purchase a chapbook (we have Hinton, Levin, new Jeff Rath, and more).
