February 28th: Mignon Ariel King 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 February 28th, Mignon Ariel King returns to Stone Soup.

Mignon Ariel King was born in Boston City Hospital in 1964. It became apparent in kindergarten that she would probably be a bookworm and "city-girl" for life. After barely graduating from Boston Latin Academy and college thanks to language and visual arts abilities, she began a career as a formal scholar and experienced an intellectual and creative revitalization while earning a Master of Arts degree from the Graduate Program ...in English at Simmons College. Mignon was an adjunct English professor for about ten years, a database-clerical-research assistant in academic and nonprofit offices for a lot longer than ten years, and has filled in holes in her Swiss-cheesy resume with freelance proofreading and copyediting. For a list of publications and future events, visit her blog Making Poetry.

After 15 years of writing autobiography, Mignon Ariel King returns to her roots--love poems. Some are sweet, some are bitter, many are infused with lyrics from rock and pop artists from the '70s to the present. Roll on in to say goodbye to February with one last Valentine's Day celebration!
