July 5th: Aaron Goldstein 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 July 5th,ollowing the Fourth of July festivities, Aaron Goldstein brings his conservative viewpoint that has launched a thousand response poems at The Cantab to Stone Soup.

Aaron Goldstein has been writing poetry for nearly twenty years. Originally from Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, Aaron came to Boston ten years ago in the pursuit of happiness. A conservative in a field dominated by liberals, socialists and communists, Aaron can be seen antagonizing the patrons and poets of the Cantab Lounge on most Wednesday nights with his verse from the right. Aaron is also an accomplished essayist on politics and other passions and is a regular online contributor to The American Spectator as well as other conservative blogs.

Aaron's poems were featured in the anthology Out of the Blue Writers Unite (2003). He has also put out two chapbooks Oysters & The Newborn Child: Melancholy & Dead Musicians (2003) and Woman in the Sky: Poems Inspired by Amelia Earhart & The Journey of Flight (2009).

Aaron, however, does not live by politics alone. His other passions include, but are not limited to, baseball, music and ketchup flavored potato chips. Aaron currently lives in Jamaica Plain where he shares space with the beloved Boston poet Christopher Kain.
