Poets Vincent Lombardo
and Jane Rades
open mic follows

vincent lombardoVincent Lombardo, a New Yorker out of Milan, will be joined by local poet Jane Rades for a reading January 19th, followed by an open mic.

Lombardo’s poems have recently been included in the issue dedicated to contemporary poets in ‘Poets and Poetry’, Italy’s national magazine published in Rome. His work has included the cycles ‘Trees and Silence’ and ‘River Poetry’, as well as portions of the knightly epic ‘Order of the Roaring Stars’, wherein the figure of Parsifal, man’s ‘pure fool’ saviour is a dalmation, borrowing from Schopenhauer’s concerns for animal welfare, as taken up by Richard Wagner’s animalism and anti-vivisection beliefs.   Lombardo is also a dramatist and a mime.  He has lived several decades in Milan where he was originally taken on a Fulbright grant to work in the late 1970’s, to collaborate in the stage directing department of Teatro alla Scala.

Jane Rades is a long-time San Franciscan, whose quiet, crystalline poetry is unassuming and direct.

An open mic follows.
