Actress highlights Poetry Jam
by Alexa Sussman - On September 15, 2013, Madison Theatre at Molloy College held Poetry Jam, an event featuring Amber Tamblyn, a film/television star and poetry performer, and Derrick C. Brown, poet and president of Write Bloody Publishing.
Local poets Peter Dugan, Megan Falley, Vicki Iorio, and Christina Rau were also there to share their poems, both old favorites and new additions. Subject matter of the poems varied from poetry itself, to Vick's Vapor Rub, to Theresa Caputo. Highlighted with different styles and tempos, there was something for every audience member to enjoy.
"Poetry is many things to many people, and it is the soul of literature," said Barbara Novack, Molloy's Writer-in-Residence and master of ceremonies of Sunday's event.
All poets definitely showed their artistic souls at Poetry Jam on Sunday, impressing audience members and other poets alike. The next poetry event at Molloy is being held on October 6 and will feature poet Diane Frank.
