On Friday, July 24th, 7:00-9:00 pm, the New Philadelphia Poets will hold a reading to benefit Philadelphia’s 32-year-old, all-volunteer, collectively-run Wooden Shoe Books (508 S. 5th St. Philadelphia, PA 19147). The evening will include readings by Sarah Heady, Patrick Lucy, Debrah Morkun, Jamie Townsend, Angel Hogan, Marion Bell, Greg Bem and Carlos Soto Román.
The featured readers will be followed by an open mic session. Audience members are encouraged to bring their own poems, stories, voices, instruments…anything they’d like to share! There will be a $5 suggested donation at the door, as well as drinks and appetizers for a small price. All proceeds will go directly to the Wooden Shoe’s “Moving Fund” campaign.
