Moonstone Poetry @ Fergie’s Pub, 1214 Sansom Street
July 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Mike Cohen hosts Poetry Aloud and Alive at Philadelphia’s Big Blue Marble Book Store. His articles on sculpture appear in the Schuylkill Valley Journal in which he is a contributing editor. He also played Editor Whedon in a Laurel Hill Cemetery production of Spoon River Anthology for the Philly Fringe Festival. Mike has memorized a good deal of his poetry in case a power failure during a reading leaves him in the dark. Mike’s wry writing has appeared in the Mad Poets Review, Fox Chase Review, and other journals. His poetic presentations feature humor and drama against a philosophical backdrop. Mike’s poetry can be found at http://mikecohensays.com/ and in his book BETWEEN THE I’S
