St. Rocco’s Reading for the Dispossessed for June with Aimee (Harrison) Wright Clow, Alexis Bhagat, dgls.n.rthschld, & Kenning JP Garcia
THIS WILL BE AN OUTDOOR EVENT At Gabi’s Garden / People’s Park – corner of Grand St. and Wilbur Street
We will have amplification. And at last, we will have refreshments again! Masks are recommended, but no longer required. There will be a few chairs, but if you can bring your own chair that’s great and helps everyone with social distancing.
This is a free event. Donations are welcome.

KENNING JP GARCIA is an anti-poet and diarist and founding member of St. Rocco’s Poetry Collective. Kenning is neither man nor myth but enjoys a good origin story. So, Brooklyn is where xe began and Albany is where xe hopes not to end although endings do not frighten Kenning. Endings are merely a gateway to upgrades, sequels, and remastered re-releases. In the time between the initial and the impending, Kenning writes chronicles, humor and lyrical narratives, including So This Is Story (Shirt PocketPress), They Say (WEST VINE PRESS) and Playing Dead.
