An Afternoon in the garden

“Got to get ourselves back to The Garden!” -Joni Mitchell 1969

Please join us for the first of three garden readings this summer and enjoy
a wonderful afternoon in a bucolic setting with amazing poetry and spoken
word artistry. Free admission and all welcome.

No restrooms in the park so please look for relief at a local restaurant or
bar prior to arriving and please take you trash when you leave.

Zach Katz is a poet and storyteller born and raised in forgotten borough of
Staten Island, NY. He taught High School English in the inner city before
moving on to become a Mental Health Counselor and practicing
Psychotherapist. For the past 2 years, Zach has shared his work as a
performance poet at venues throughout New York City. He is a strong advocate
for the use of writing, language, and story as a means of growth, healing,
and empowerment. When he is not counseling, teaching, writing, or
performing, he might be found drinking too much coffee while playing
acoustic guitar in his underwear.

Zev Torres is a writer and spoken word performer whose work has appeared in
numerous print and on-line publications including Suitcase of
Chrysanthemums, Maintenant 12, Teflon Feathers & Copper Empathy and The Wild
Word. He has featured at many New York City spoken word venues, including
Rimes of the Ancient Mariner, Great Weather’s Spoken Word Sundays, Tract 187
Culture Clatch, Green Pavilion, and The Saturn Poetry Series. Since 2008 Zev
has hosted Make Music New York’s annual Spoken Word Extravaganza, and in
2010 founded the Skewered Syntax Poetry Crawls.

John T. Trigonis is a broken haiku. Neon troubadour. Knight errant of the
written word. With an MFA in poetry writing from Brooklyn College, a
Pushcart Prize nomination, and a single written-on rejection slip from The
New Yorker beckoning he send more, his work has appeared in over four dozen
magazines and journals that have made appearances on the bottom shelf of the
Barnes & Noble newsstand. And while he is no stranger to accolades, he
believes that it is not praise that proves a poet’s worth, but the poems
themselves. For over 20 years Trigonis has been a proud staple of the Hudson
Country poetry scene, and he is always honored and humbled to be able to
share his words with new and familiar audiences alike. His first full-length
book of poetry, Pale Imitation of a Rusty Old Night Club Performer & Other
Poems, is due out in early 2020.

Pauline Findlay is the author of the book “Mirror Images.” Her second
collection “Dysfunction” will be released November of this year. Pauline’s
characters and subject matters are one that will leave you feeling gutted at
side of the road. You can see some of her short films on YouTube as she
brings these stark poems to life. Her performances are at various venues
between Brooklyn and Manhattan. She’s one of the original “Silver tongued
Devil’s.” follow her @ringmastersideshow or on Facebook

Luciann Berrios is a published poet, author and editor. She released her
first manuscript under Fly By Night Press entitled, Thunder and Sunshine in
One Body in 2017. Her second book was released in 2018 entitled Women of
Eve’s Garden; this was an anthology she created, curated, contributed to and
edited consisting of 10 female and non-binary poets and one visual artist.
This collection has since been accepted into the US Library of Congress as
of 2018. She has also been published in two other anthologies; one called
WORD, by A Gathering of the Tribes (Steve Cannon, recipient of the Barnes
and Noble writer for writers award), that is in libraries and museums around
the country and abroad and the other is being completed by Anthony Murphy
and Linda Kleinbub. This will be released along with the NY Times reviewed
Philip Giambri (aka the Ancient Mariner) and the Silver Tongued Devils. She
continues to write, hold writing workshops in high schools for students as a
way of navigating their experiences outside of harmful coping methods, and
perform across New York City. She is currently working on her third book and
women driven initiatives.

East Village NYC .The official Rubber Eden Bar is one that my Kid’s GF picked out for me on the lower east side one Fall. Must to check out the. No sound system (only a old juke box)  nice and dark, circular bar stocked with regulars, ill-regulars, beats, punks, hippies, left-overs, reheated souls and characters galore and aglow. Friendly bartenders, cheap beer (yea they have 3 buck High Life) and a killer court yard out back (as displayed here) to have a butt and talk in. Here’s a link for more info
