Third Thursday Poetry Night featuring David Graham
Poet David Graham will read from his work at the Social Justice Center, 33 Central Ave., Albany on Thursday, April 21, 2022 at 7:30PM. David Graham has published seven collections of poems, most recently The Honey of Earth (Terrapin Books, 2019). Currently retired from a long career in teaching, he now writes a column, “Poetic License,” for the online journal Verse-Virtual.
The Third Thursday Poetry Night has been at the Social Justice Center since July 2006, but due to the Corona virus pandemic, as well as needed structural repairs at the Center, the event was not held from early 2020 until January 2022. We are pleased to be back once again. The featured poet on May 18 will be Tim Verhaegen; on June 16 Catherine Arra, & on July 21 Megeen Mulholland.
A reading by a local or regional poet is held each Third Thursday at the Social Justice Center. The event includes an open mic for audience members to read. Sign-up starts at 7:00PM, with the reading beginning at 7:30. The host of the readings is Albany poet and photographer Dan Wilcox. The suggested donation is $5.00, which helps support this and other poetry programs of the Poetry Motel Foundation, and the work of the Social Justice Center.
