Tonight at An Beal Bocht Cafe in Riverdale, Poor Mouth Poetry will feature Robert Kramer and Jonathan Wells.

Robert Kramer is a playwright, poet, and translator of European literature. He is a professor of European Cultural History and was the Director of International Studies at Manhattan College for several years. He is the recipient of several awards from the National Endowment for the Humanities as well as a Fullbright scholarship.

Jonathan Wells is the author of two collections of poetry. Four Way Books just released his newest book The Man with Many Pens. His work has appeared in or has been accepted for publication at journals such as The New Yorker, Ploughshares, AGNI, American Poets and many other prestigious journals. 

Come hear these two fantastic poets. Interested parties may also participate in the reading, as there will be two short open mic sets. All genres are welcome, but readers must sign up in person with Melinda Wilson at An Beal. The reading is scheduled to begin at 8:30pm.
