On Friday, May 27th beginning at 7pm The Bookey Readings at the Harlow welcomes two of Maine’s most dynamic poets, Ellen Taylor and Dave Morrison for an evening of poetry. Both poets, full of the love of poetry, promise an evening of entertainment, charm, and delightful, thought-provoking spoken word. The public is invited to attend the event and a $3 donation to benefit the Harlow Gallery is appreciated at the door. Refreshments are served.
Taylor is the author of three collections of poetry, the latest being Compass Rose, published by Moon Pie Press. She has published her work widely in New England and nationally, as well as in the Caribbean and more recently, in Slovenia, while on a Fulbright exchange. She teaches creative writing, literature, and Women and Gender studies at the University of Maine at Augusta, and makes her home in Appleton, Maine.
Morrison, a veteran guitarist in rock & roll bars in Boston and NYC, brings poems from eleven books of poetry including Clubland (Fighting Cock Press, 2011), poems about rock & roll bars in metered verse, and his most recent, Cancer Poems (JukeBooks 2015). He is widely published in literary magazines and anthologies, and featured on Writer’s Almanac and Take Heart.
