Barbara DeCesare, on September 13,
will be featured versifier at the Midtown Scholar Bookstore.
Doors open at 6:50pm, and good seats are limited so come early, especially in the event you'd like to perform in a brief, but vigorous, open reading which will precede DeCesare's presentation.
Barbara DeCesare speaks directly to you with simplicity, naturalness, and her own brand of humor that questions just about anything she finds interesting, tender, painful, and/or cruel. She's quite a fascinating performer.
DeCesare earned her MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College and teaches Creative Writing for HACC York. She is the author of the collections Jigsaweyesore, Adrift, Silent Type, some acts of fiction and a billion tiny plays. Poems and fiction by Barbara DeCesare have appeared in many literary journals, including Poetry, Alaska Quarterly, and Gargoyle Magazine.
The Almost Uptown Poetry Cartel hosts open readings every Thursday at the Midtown Scholar Bookstore, 1302 North Third Street, Harrisburg, PA 17102 from 7-9PM.
