FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 7PM
On Friday, October 12th at 7pm, the Harlow will “Maine Veterans Speak”, an evening of poetry readings by Maine veterans including Terry Grasse and Ken Graham. This event is also open to all veterans who want to participate.
The evening will open with poetry by Viet Nam Vet, Terry Grasse who often visits high schools in the Brunswick area where students are studying the Viet Nam war. Drafted right out of high school to Viet Nam, he was a radio operator with a military intelligence unit. He writes from his own perspective about the realities of war, and says he wants people to understand what war really is; that it’s ‘real people killing real people’. Grasse will open the evening with some of his work, and an open mic for all veterans will continue on throughout the evening.
Musician Ken Graham will provide music for the evening. Ken is also a veteran, and well-known as a musician who can be found several nights of any week playing solo or in duos at events and pubs in central and coastal Maine.
The Harlow hosts the Bookey Readings at the Harlow, a poetry series monthly April through November, that has offered spoken word at its best for 25 years. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
