Moonstone Poetry at Fergie’s Pub: Featuring Richard Bank, Ryan Eckes, and Al Tacconelli
September 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Richard Bank’s poetry has appeared in numerous small press poetry journals. He has conducted a poetry reading series for the Mad Poets Society in the Philadelphia area. Bank has conducted Continuing Legal Education courses on jury techniques, and serves as an adjunct professor at Villanova Law School.
Ryan Eckes’ narrative-driven poetry is, in his words, “a possible form of history:” a way to document the voices and conditions of urban life. In his latest book, Valu-Plus, Eckes continues his examination of Philadelphia, as he imaginatively makes use of corporate language, workplace correspondence, and other non-poetic texts, “in search of free expression and experience,” he says.
Poet and artist, Al Tacconelli has read at Robin’s Bookstore, The Free Library Of Philadelphia, and Hofstra University. Al’s poems have appeared in The Endicott Review, and Mad Poets Review. His chapbooks are; Two Countries, One Heart, and The Laurenzi Poem. An open mic will follow the featured readers. The event is free and 21+. Suzan Jivan, Host
