the poets speak

Allen & Kleinberg

Every once in a while, the poets (and even the bloggers) come out from behind their desks, their keyboards and their piles of paper to give voice to their words. You can witness such an event this very evening, Thursday, November 19, 2015, starting at 7:00pm at the SoulFood Coffee House in Redmond, Washington.

Luther Allen and J.I. Kleinberg will be the featured readers at SoulFood Poetry Night, a monthly poetry gathering that’s been going on for ten years. Plus, you can bring your own poems and read (for 3-4 minutes) during the open mic that follows!

In their readings, Allen and Kleinberg will no doubt touch on a variety of important topics, including astronomy, Felix Hernandez, loss and hope and love and obsession (with magazines, in particular), as well as errant bears and deviant tablecloths.

Tonight! Come on!
