March 10: Mignon Ariel King Features at Stone Soup

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 March 10, we have the long-awaited return of local author and new publisher Mignon Ariel King, who will be celebrating the release of her newest collection.

Mignon Ariel King is a third-generation New Englander who was born in Boston City Hospital.  An alumna of Girls' Latin School and the Graduate Program in English at Simmons College, she identifies as a womanist writer.  Her current autobiographical collection of poetry "What Good is a View of the Charles...?" was inspired both by the poetry of Charles Bukowski and by King's lifetime of living in Massachusetts.  It is Volume 2 of a trilogy within a trilogy.

This year, the writer celebrates being 50 by publishing in all three of her writing genres: poetry, memoir, and novella.  She is the Publisher of Hidden Charm Press and Tell-Tale Chapbooks.  She is also a Classic Hard Rock and sports fan.  For more info on her current projects, check out the blog Making Books at mignonarielking.wordpress.com
