11/14 Ellis & Silsbe Rock the Apollo

THIS FRIDAY…

“The “Pittsburgh Poets Rock the Apollo” poetry reading at 7:30 p.m. is part of the library’s three-part series introducing six published poets to the area.

“Poetry can go to the heart when people are open to it,” said Angele Ellis, who will be reading a selection of her poems.“The experience of reading poetry and having someone hear it and respond to it is like sending out a message in a bottle. When someone receives that and responds to it, it is very exciting. There is a power in poetry.”

Friday evening is the second installment in the series and will feature poetry read by Ellis and Scott Silsbe. The series began in September with readings from Kristopher Collins and Don Wentworth. The final installment is Feb. 13 and features poets Renée Alberts and Robert Walicki.
