 “Us poets are notoriously bad at math, but this we know: Philly poetry is fun. Movies are fun. Poetry x movies = funner squared. If you’re ready for something a little different in your literary delights, look no ffurther then Poe-Film Tuesdays”  Warren Longmire

Open reading starts at 7pm, followed by the feature, followed by an interview with the feature, followed by the film – Warren Longmire Host

The Poet: Steve Clark is the 2013 “Best Storyteller in Philadelphia,” winner of the First Person Arts Storytelling Grand Slam. He is a 6th grade teacher in Philly (not dissimilar from Mr. Feeney of Boy Meets World). He writes and performs both Poetry and Stories; he competed in his first ever Poetry Grand Slam at The Fuze on April 26, 2013. He enjoys singing Clay Aiken songs at Karaoke, likes just about anything “meta,” and carries his all time favorite book, Infinite Jest,  with him just about everywhere he goes.

He is tall. And awkward. (But awkwardly endearing, you know? At least he hopes)

The Film: Stardust Memories

The film follows famous filmmaker Sandy Bates, who is plagued by fans who prefer his “earlier, funnier movies” to his more recent artistic efforts, while he tries to reconcile his conflicting attraction to two very different women: the earnest, intellectual Daisy and the more maternal Isobel. Meanwhile, he is also haunted by memories of his ex-girlfriend, the mercurial Dorrie.
