7 PM, First Wednesday Poetry Series featuring Jim Colbert

Wednesday Aug 6th, 2014

The First Wednesday at Webster's Poetry Series continues on August 6 with featured poet Jim Colbert. Join us at 7 p.m. for a poetry open mic and then Colbert's reading. We'll also be giving away a book of poetry and a Webster's gift certificate.

HOW IT WORKS: Each month, we host a reading by a featured poet, plus an open mic for everyone to share their work. Featured poets will read for 25 minutes. Open mic poets may read one poem, so that the night moves along at a good pace and everyone stays till the end. The series is free, but we'll ask for donations to pay each featured poet. 

ABOUT AUGUST'S FEATURED POET: Hailed by Poetry Magazine as "a valued subscriber," Jim Colbert is the author of two collections of poetry, Defiantly Blue Sky and Tonight The Moon. His work, often focused on the people and surrounding of Central and Western Pennsylvania, has been described as "A Wyeth painting turned into words ... simple at first glance, but with underlying layers of textures and values." As a singer/songwriter, Colbert was winner in the PA Heritage, SFMS and Rose Garden performing songwriter competitions, and has performed from New Hampshire and Massachusetts to Texas. He is active behind the scenes in numerous acoustic music events and organizations, and is celebrating his tenth year as a DJ for the Folk Show on WPSUfm.

FOR MORE INFORMATION: Contact series host Jason Crane with questions or suggestions for featured poets at jason@webstersbooksandcafe.com.
