Summer Poetry Scarab Mondays

Over the Hedge
Come out to the Scarab Club tomorrow, July 20, for Springfed Arts-Metro Detroit Writers Summer Poetry Scarab Mondays. On the bill are the winners of the 2009 Springfed Arts-Metro Detroit Writers Fiction & Poetry Contest. The event will be hosted by poet Olga Klekner and includes Sophia Rivkin, Kevin Griffin, Zilka Joseph, Christine Rhein, Randy Schwartz, Linda Nemic Foster, John Jeffire, Maria Costantini, Dennis Hurley. I know most of them personally so I can vouch for the good hearts behind the mic that night. I will not be in attendance since for all I know tomorrow could be my son's birthday. We're sticking close to home in wait-and-see mode.
Summer Poetry Scarab Mondays schedule:
July 27: MDW Open Mic, hosted by Tonja Dudley Bagwell
Aug 3: Margo LaGattuta (Northern Oakland poet & fiction writer), Daniel Padilla (Marick Press poet), Christine Rhein (Metro Detroit poet). Hosted by Olga Klekner
Aug 10: Steven Abbott (Columbus, Ohio poet & literary activist), David Cope (beat poet & Western Michigan legend), Phoenix LaShaun (slam poet & poetry Host @ Cliff Bells in Detroit)

The readings are Monday nights, 7pm-9pm @ the Scarab Club (217 Farnsworth @ John R across from the DIA). All free.
Call 313-831-1250 for directions.
