and more to come . . .
Here are the photos taken from the Second Brownstone Poets 2014 Anthology Reading on Thursday, March 19 at Barnes and Noble Booksellers in Park Slope, Brooklyn. I apologize for messing up a few of the shots and for missing out on a photographing a few poets. The event started out slow, but people kept coming in and so did the excitement, making this event standing room only. Kudos to our Guest Poet George Held and to the contributors who were able to make the event. They are as follows:
George Held (Guest Poet)
Ronna Lebo (a.k.a Alice B. Talkless)
Brenda J. Gannam
Ernest K. Woodley
Noel David Cohen
Will plan to post the first event pictures from Park Plaza Restaurant soon. Have a slow computer and must start publishing the 2015 anthology ASAP!
