June 14th: Alan Feldman Features

Stone Soup Poetry meets from 8-10 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery at 106 Prospect Street with an open mike sign-up at 7:30 p.m. On June 14, we have poet and teacher Alan Feldman making his first Stone Soup appearance.

Alan Feldman is the author of The Happy Genius (SUN, 1978), A Sail to Great Island (University of Wisconsin Press, 2004), and a number of chapbooks, including The Personals (Choomia, 1982), Anniversary (1992), Round Trip (2003) and On the Zocalo (2007)––these last three with color drawings by Nan Hass Feldman. His poetry has appeared in The Atlantic, The New Yorker, Poetry, The Nation, The Southern Review, Virginia Quarterly Review, Threepenny Review and several anthologies such as Best American Poetry 2001 and Best American Erotic Poems From 1800 to the Present. He has received the Elliston Book Award, the Pollak Prize for Poetry, as well as fellowships from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. He teaches a free drop-in poetry workshop during the year at the Framingham Public Library, and during the summer at the Wellfleet Public Library.
