Every month the Albany Library hosts a special evening dedicated to listening to poetry. Held on the first Thursday, this event usually includes a featured poet followed by an open mic.
For October, five Cave Canem poets will be present. The Cave Canem Foundation is a home for the many voices of African American poetry and is committed to cultivating the artistic and professional growth of African American poets.
Four of the poets are the featured readers. These include award-winning poet and prose writer Opal Palmer Adisa; Tap-Root author Indigo Moor; former San Francisco Poet Laureate devorah major; and, Marvin K. White, author of two LAMBDA Literary Award-nominated poetry collections. Poet Camille Dungy will emcee. More information about Cave Canem can be found at www.cavecanempoets.org.
This evening starts at 7 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m. We welcome all who enjoy the opportunity to share the love of poetry with others. Questions? Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
