Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam & Open Mike for  Women & Trans’

Thursday – November 30th  7pm – 9pm 

Writers: Phyllis Capello & Angela Alaimo O”Donnell

Phyllis Capello writes about women & their work.  She’s a writer/musician from Brooklyn.  Her poetry collection, “Packs Small Plays Big,” is forthcoming from Bordighera Press

Angela Alaimo O’Donnell will read from her newest collection, STILL PILGRIM–poems that focus on the nature of the human pilgrimage, especially as seen from the perspective of a woman.  In Mary Gordon’s words, O’Donnell “makes the daring move of including what has been considered undesirable subject matter for contemporary writers: the ordinary lived life of women, and the ardor and anguish of a religious life.” In addition, she will read from a project she is currently working on–poems channeling the voice of writer Flannery O’Connor.
