+ poetry of David Hallstrom
followed by an open mic
Dan Liberthson crafts poems from his thoughts on family, animals, baseball… all the things that tease his curious mind. A storyteller as well as a wordsmith, his belief in the power and utility of narrative and language never flags. He has several collections to his name, the latest being Morning, and Begin Again (self-published, 2012).
David Hallstrom, probably the first poet to recite one of his poems to us across the counter at “the old bookstore” — the location down on Diamond Street which we opened up in May of 1999 — wrote of the moon, love, wine, the classic subjects of the poet.
We’ve still got Dan in our midst, and he’ll deliver some new poems and perhaps a few old ones. David, we lost a few years ago, and several of his old friends will read from manuscript pages that his old friend Joe Morosco has held onto.
Jerry Ferraz hosts. An open mic follows.
