To have great poets, there must be great audiences.

Standard

Ah, that Walt Whitman, he really knew what he was talking about.

Harry “the Great” Calhoun and I will be reading this Wednesday, July 23, at UnVine’d in Cary. There’s room for open mic readers and, of course, there’s room for a great audience.

Here are the details…

Location: UnVine’d Wine Bar & Tapas, 201 West Chatham St., #103, Olde Cary Commons, Cary, NC (Reminiscent of a 1920s speakeasy, UnVine’d Wine Bar and Tapas is tucked away in the heart of downtown Cary. Fine wines at affordable prices… tapas, paninis and salads prepared by gourmet chefs… and walls adorned with artwork from local artists, courtesy of Manifestationz Art Gallery. It’s the perfect atmosphere for an evening of poetry!)

Time7:30pm to 9:30pm (or thereabouts)

Date: Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Open mic: You’ve got 5 minutes to wow the great audience. Sign up in advance with me (kswiberg at gmail.com) or Harry (HarryC13 at aol.com); or sign up that night.

Harry has had work published in various poetry journals and more than a dozen books, oh let’s risk inflating it, maybe two dozen chapbooks. But he’s old. His most recent collection is Failure is Unimportant. Don’t ask him if that’s true after he’s had a bad day.

You already know lil’ ol’ me.
