Curated by Patricia Carragon



David Elsasser has been a host of the Saturn Series Reading for over seven years. He has exhibited his photos of open-mic poets, and his poetry chapbook, Last Call, published by Poets Wear Prada Press, is now available.

Bob Hart has gone from middle age to old age these last years writing poetry. He has seen word scenes like 77 Barrow Street, Centerfold Coffee House, ABC No Rio and most lately, the new Pink Pony at Cornelia Street Café, hoping they enjoyed him as much as he enjoyed them.

This Tillies reading is the second time he’s read for The Brownstone Poets.

Mike Marcellino, a Vietnam war correspondent and award-winning journalist, continues to write stories and poems about people, places and things. Mike has added a twist: with musicians the stories become a unique blend of music and spoken word. He’s performed in New York City, Cleveland, Tulsa and Baltimore. Mike is listed #49 among the Top Folk Artists in New York City on the music website ReverbNation. His new recordings include Flatbush, Amelia Earhart, soft silver wings, and The Walls of Fire. He surfs and writes about that too (Bondi Beach). His writing appears in Coventry Street Fair Anthology and Stain Glass Confessional II and online at Outsider Writers, Red Fez, Literary Fever and Universe of Poetry. Mike hosts Notebook Writer Blog Talk Radio show on writers and the arts.
