Tues 1/28 Marisa Frasca & Joanne Pagano Weber Read at Bluestocking’s Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam
Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike
Tuesday Jan 28th 7pm – 9pm
Feature Writers: Marisa Frasca & Joanne Pagano Weber
Marisa Frasca’s poems deal with feminist issues, others a naturalist’s concerns, yet others are about an immigrant’d duality and experiences, but her characters are usually women and how they face questions of love, pain, subjugation, coming of age and growing into old age.
Joanne Pagano Weber’s writing and visual art is directly influenced by the matriarchal narrative tradition learned in her grandmother’s kitchen in the Bronx. Through a tiny lens, she is ever on the lookout for the miraculous in the everyday and the redemptive in the fallible, grounded in a plebeian and fatalistic world view.
