Stonewall National Museum Celebrates April as Poetry Month with Gregg Shapiro and Neil Del La Flor, Tuesday, April 2, 7PM @ The Stonewall.
Inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996, National Poetry Month is now held every April, when schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets throughout the United States band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture. Thousands of organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.
Gregg Shapiro has had poems appear in numerous anthologies, including "Best Gay Poetry 2008" and "Poetic Voices Without Borders 2" - and in publications such as BAC Street Journal. He has work forthcoming in Court Green and Ganymede. Shapiro's book, "Protection"(2008, Gival Press), was recently featured in the First Books issue of Beltway Poetry Quarterly.
Neil de la Flor is a writer, photographer, teacher and former fashion designer based in Miami, FL. His first book, Almost Dorothy (Marsh Hawk Press, 2010), won the Marsh Hawk Press Poetry Prize. Neil de la Flor is at once bitingly original, funny, and uncompromising." Marsh Hawk Press will publish de la Flor’s second solo collection, An Elephant’s Memory of Blizzards (April 2013),which has nothing to do with elephants or the memory or blizzards, but has everything to do with an elephant’s memory of blizzards.
It's good to talk.
