Sunday Four Poetry Open Mic to celebrate Howard Kogan book launch January 29

On Sunday, January 29, poets will gather at Old Songs to celebrate the launch of Howard Kogan’s new book, A Chill in the Air. 

The gig will begin at 3 p.m. with a toast to the bard and a treat or two to boot. There will be an open mic, but poets will be limited to one poem that focuses on the theme of the book, as in: Is your air chilly? Howard will then read from the magnum opus.

Some may wish to repair to Smitty’s afterward, which — as is well known by now — will close within the next year. That seems to be the timetable. A new Stewart’s is being planned for the site.

The Poet of the Month — and final poet in the POETS’ CORNER — will be Tom Corrado with his “WOMAN XLVII.”

Come on out and celebrate the new year with Howard and friends.
