Economic Justice & The Universality Of Heartache

At different times over the years serving as a lawyer, teacher and political candidate--while consistently throughout a writer and social justice activist, Richard Duffee returns to Barnes & Noble’s Open Mic as tomorrow night’s featured reader.

Richard’s past residence and travels in India, Nepal and numerous other countries lends universal texture to his poetry, satires, commentaries and critiques, which frequently reveal the personal heartache when the forces of culture, social policy and economics collide with human need, rights and aspirations.

The Barnes & Noble Open Mic poetry program meets the second Monday of each month in the cookbook section on the main floor of the bookstore (located in the Stamford Town Center), now beginning at 7:15 p.m.

Downtown Open Mic Returns

With the recent announcement of the impending closure of Barnes and Noble bookstores in
Norwalk and elsewhere in Fairfield County, the return tomorrow evening of the Open Mic poetry program held in the chain’s largest regional bookstore in Stamford is welcome news.  Facilitated by founder Frank Chambers, prior to going on hiatus, the monthly program was previously co-hosted by PoemAlley’s own Nick Miele, who left his position last summer as president of the PA Committee to pursue teaching in South America.

 All are welcome to share their own or a favorite poet’s work, or to simply come and listen. Refreshments are available from the nearby in-store cafĂ©.

A Fall Celebration Of Poetry And Music

Following-up on last winter’s cozily snowbound and well-received program of readings, music and singing (delivered with delightful off-the-cuff verve by Jane Wickham and Ralph Nazareth on the piano, respectively), as well as a video presentation on the life of Emily Dickinson, Jane has put together another PoemAlley presentation for this weekend, this time celebrating Autumn.

A resident of the Mapleview Towers senior apartment complex (around the corner from the Stamford Town Center), Jane is known as much for her handmade jewelry as for her thoughtful selection of photography and art used to spot illustrate the, by turns, locally- and Continentally-flavored pieces she shares at Curley’s.

Open to the public and PA members, alike, all are encouraged to bring a favorite poem to share, or to just to come by for a listen and to enjoy complimentary refreshments. Wear a costume, if you dare!
