Grandma Moses Press is hosting a poetry reading in Albuquerque at Bookworks on July 2, at 7 PM. Admission is free because it’s priceless.
The lineup includes The Beatlick Sisters, Tim Staley, Joaquin Fore, and Katrina Guarascio.
Please join us for a night of poetry that’s not too snooty, overcooked, or boring.
Here are more details on our performers:
The Beatlick Sisters, Pamela Hirst and Holly Wilson, offer up their unique version of Poetry Theater, often incorporating spoken word, dance, art and music into a multi-media experience. The poetic duo subscribe to the philosophy: Support art, don’t wait for art to support you.
