Join us for the 2015 Read Local Series:
August 12, 2015: Embrace the world, eat it whole and wash down its continents with sips of cappuccino and wine as Salvatore Marici performs poems from his books Swish, Swirl, & Sniff and Mortals, Nature, and Their Spirits (both Ice Cube Press). Via plain language and unafraid imagery, see, taste, touch, and smell the vibrant life force that pays homage to baseball, Sicily, Middle East, Latin America, kitchens, arenas, doctor offices, our backyards, drum circles, and deities. During this poetic journey, you will have sudden surprises, receive bits of wisdom and discover amazement in what you thought was mundane.
Sal’s work has appeared in national and international publications,. He’s won poetry contests and was the 2010 Midwest Writing Center Poet-in-Residence.
