March 2017 Poetry at Florey's!

Florey's Books invites you to our ongoing poetry event!

***Saturday, March 25th, 7:30-9:30pm***

The featured poets this month are Deborah Fruchey and Cordelia Leoncio.

From Sherri:

By the time we convene for our next evening, it will be "officially" spring, and our thoughts can lightly turn to poetry. I invite you to join Aaron and me as we welcome poets Deborah Fruchey and Cordelia Leoncio, and to share in the kind of convivial and appreciative evening that has come to be the norm at Florey's - thanks to all of you!

Please bring your own, or a favorite poet's work to read at open mic (3 minutes, please). If you are so moved, perhaps you will bring some poems on the theme of spring renewal; it would be lovely to hear them. You are also more than welcome to come just to listen to the feast of language. Please also bring, if you can, a snack or drink to share, or supplies for the table (napkins, cups, plates). Having help with this is so much appreciated.

About the featured poets:

Deborah Fruchey was born. It wasn't her idea. After that she spent too much time in churches, mental hospitals, and 12 Step Groups, in that order. Finally she graduated to poetry readings, where she lurks to this day. She also writes novels once in a while. Her first full-length volume of poetry, Armadillo, was released by Cyborg Press in 2014.
Deborah is a frequent winner in the annual Bay Area Poets’ Dinner contest and the yearly Ina Coolbrith Poetry Awards. Her work has appeared in Snail Mail Review, California Quarterly, Tule Review, Miracle Magazine of India, Song of the San Joaquin, and many others. She was part of the infamous ‘Babarian’ poetry scene of the 1990s, and appears in the resulting anthology, New American Underground Poetry, Poets from Hell, by Trafford Press, as well as several other collections.
Deborah hides out in suburbia, speaking only to writers and musicians, and dreams of a cult following and a flat stomach. She is considered unarmed & mostly harmless.

Cordelia began a poem-a-day writing practice in August of 2014 and is doing her best to keep at it. Her first poetry reading was in April of 2016 at Florey’s Book Company. This will be her second poetry reading.

We hope to see you!
