Poetry Under the Paintings with Annn Keeler Evans

Fuastina’s Gallery in Lewisburg, PA

I’ve told you about the little gathering of local poets and poetry enthusiasts that have been meeting on first Thursdays since May. We call it Poetry Under the Paintings, and it’s held at Faustina’s Gallery in Lewisburg. The first one you can read about here, and the June edition, here.

The July gathering was every bit as wonderful, despite the heat. I will try to bring you a few clips from some of the readings, but I didn’t have enough space on the camera to catch everything, and some spots were a bit quiet, while others had background noise, like my sons chair sliding, and crashing his bum to the floor. ๐Ÿ™‚ Don’t worry, he’s just fine. Not even a bruised ego. If you are within driving distance of this lovely little town, please join us in August. Bring a chair and at least one poem to share. It doesn’t have to be one of your own, if you are a lover rather than a writer.

And so here is my dear friend andย colleagueย in poetry, Ann Keeler Evans. Oh the things this lady and I are planning for the central Pennsylvania poetry scene. Just you wait. Watch this space! Oh, and I do have the date wrong in the credits of the video, for those of you who are calendar checkers. But hey, I’m a poet; surely you are not looking to me for historical accuracy.

      Oh, Susie, you should definitely go! It’s so much fun, and a whole different thing, getting a live audience’s reaction. Plus all that inspiration in one place is good for the soul.

  4. That’s a great name. I’m a member of a writing group and a poetry group and we meet at Stockport Art Gallery, so we could have been imaginative and called ourselves something similar. Your name is much better than ours – more poetic ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was interested to note the guitarist; isn’t that off-putting when you read?

    My compliments to the poet.

    Happy to hear your son only suffered from a bit of embarrassment, rather than any serious injury.

      I may put up a bit of the video of the look on the poet’s face while she was reading. You hear the crash and then see her eyes go WIDE. lol

    Ann makes great mint iced tea, and writes great poetry. Tell her she needs to take the show on the road to Denver. ๐Ÿ™‚
