Glenn Shea was born and has lived most of his life in Connecticut. He has worked in the library of a cancer clinic and in the French department of a foreign-language bookshop, washed dishes in the Scottish Highlands, gone to pilgrim’s mass in Santiago, and eaten really good tex-mex in Chengdu. He has read his poems in local libraries and shops and at venues in Dublin, Paris and Verona. He works with a group of illuminati in a huge used-book shop in Connecticut. His poetry collections, Find A Place That Could Pass for Home and The Pilgrims of Tombelaine, are published by Salmon Poetry in Ireland.
Waterford resident Suzy Lamson is the author of Red Riding Hood at Sixty and Rose Between Her Teeth. Her poems have appeared in a number of literary journals, including the Connecticut River Review, Caduceus, and The Underwood Review. Several poems were performed by the East Haddam Stage Company. She has been a featured reader in various venues throughout Connecticut, and her poems were part of the Hoxie Gallery’s Painting and Poetry Exhibit in Westerly in September 2005.
Joanie DiMartino has work published in many literary journals and anthologies, including Modern Haiku, Alimentum, Calyx, and Circe’s Lament: An Anthology of Wild Women. She is the author of two collections of poetry, Licking the Spoon and Strange Girls, and is completing her third manuscript, “Wood to Skin,” about the 19th-century whaling industry, for which she was a 38th Voyager on the Charles W. Morgan. Her work was most recently on display at the Hygienic Art Gallery in New London, CT, where she performed poetry interspersed with whale song as part of the Gaia’s Lament: Art Cry environmental awareness exhibit. DiMartino lives in Mystic, CT with her family and two very literary cats.
Come enjoy a lazy summer evening with chilled wine and poetry!
