North American Launch of Waiting for Saint Brendan

  • The Wren 344 Bowery New York, NY, 10012 United States (map)

You are cordially invited to the North American launch of my first collection, Waiting for Saint Brendan and Other Poems 

http://www.salmonpoetry.com/details.php?ID=266&a=227 

Writer Scott Morris will emcee the event (quite possibly dressed as Elvis, but otherwise in the guise of a 3rd generation Floridian gentleman). The event will also include a reading of some of the poems from Brendan as interpreted by actor / poet Thomas Dooley who is the artistic director of emotive fruition (a theatre collective where actors collaborate with poets to bring poetry to life on stage: see www.emotivefruition.org for further details). The book will be available for 15$ USD (although Euros are acceptable). The event is free. Bring a friend. 

About Scott Morris: Scott Morris is the author of The Total View of Taftly (Hill Street Press, 2000) and Waiting for April (Algonquin Books, 2003). He has studied in Oxford (Mississippi) and Oxford (of the dons). He was an editor of The Oxford American and holds an MFA in Fiction from New York University. He is involved in several exciting writing projects, including the LA novel Right Now This Instant and Gaines Green.
 

Extra information: If you didn't already know it, "The Wren, the wren, [is] the king of all birds."
