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.
