Spoken Word Series
Next Sunday 11/4 at 3pm.
For the third installment of The Center of Performing Arts at DeBaun Auditorium’s Spoken Word Series, curator David Vincenti has chosen a seasoned poetry series host to be featured on Sunday, November 4, 2007 at 3pm – Kate Greenstreet. The Spoken Word Series is presented monthly at Symposia Bookstore, 510 Washington St. in Hoboken, NJ.
Ahsahta Press published Kate Greenstreet’s first book, case sensitive, in 2006. She is also the author of two chapbooks, Learning the Language (Etherdome Press, 2005) and Rushes (above/ground press, 2007). Her second book, The Last 4 Things, is forthcoming from Ahsahta Press in 2009. Kate received a fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts in 2003 and her poems have appeared in Conduit, Barrow Street, Pool, 26, Xantippe, and other journals. She lives in Belford, NJ, about 15 miles south of Manhattan if you travel by boat under the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, across Raritan Bay. The bay is named after the Raritans, a tribe of the Lenape, who lived in the immediate area around the bay during the 17th century at the time of the arrival of the Dutch colonists.

Kate will read from her works and then the microphone will open to the public to share their work. Although it is not necessary to pre-register to attend the event, those interested in sharing their work during the open-microphone portion are asked to sign up at 2:45pm, prior to the event’s official start time. Open microphone participants are asked to limit their work to five minutes per person.
