Join us for an evening of poetry, featuring Louise Runyon, Thrower Starr, and Robert Brown. Supported in part by Poets & Writers.
Louise Runyon, also a dancer/choreographer, has published three books of poetry and is at work on a fourth. Based in time and space and laced with movement, her poetry reflects a dancer’s sensibility and is grounded in observation of the natural world. Artistic Director of Louise Runyon Performance Company, she has toured her solo performance Crones, Dolls and Raging Beauties around the nation. She is also a practitioner of theFeldenkrais Method® of movement education.www.LouiseRunyonPerformance.com
Thrower Starr has been writing poetry for 45 years. His poetry draws on both nature and relationships, and encompasses celebration and loss. He works at Paideia School as an English teacher and as counselor, and is also a psychologist in private practice. Long interested in men’s work, for the past decade his English classes have been boys-only.www.ThrowerStarr.com
A lifelong poet, Robert Brown has studied with Robert Bly, Phil Levine, Sharon Olds, and Cecilia Woloch. He has worked as a high school English teacher and political organizer, driven a New York City cab, run the family business, sold balloons, and a dozen other jobs that have worked their way into his poems. He has also written extensively about life with his daughter Vita.
