Third Thursday Poetry Night Featuring Joe Krausman
Literary man-about-town Joe Krausman will read from his work at the Social Justice Center, 33 Central Ave., Albany on Thursday, August 18, 2022, at 7:30 PM.
Joe Krausman is a faithful participant at open mics, readings, & other literary events in the Albany poetry scene. He is a member of the boards of the Friends & Foundation of the Albany Public Library, & the Hudson Valley Writers Guild. His recent book, Parabolic Dishes (produced by The Troy Book Makers), contains parables & short stories on art, love, death & the search for meaning.
The Third Thursday Poetry Night has been at the Social Justice Center since July 2006, but due to the Coronavirus 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 reader on September 15 will be Sally Rhoades; on October 20 Megeen Mulholland; & on November 17 Jan Tramontano.
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.
