On Monday, in an Invitation to Equal Grounds and more, Bart White invited us to a celebration of poetry at Equal Grounds Café on South Avenue Saturday December 10th. In addition (below), Bart shared two poems.
Bart, a native of North Carolina, moved to Rochester in 2002. He heard live poetry at Franlee Frank’s wonderful shop, Greenwood Books, gave his first reading there in 2012, and joined Just Poets soon after. Bart has edited several collections of poetry, including Birdsong, just out. Bart teaches Spanish and French at the Harley School, and champions poetry there.
Bart’s works adds to our prospering Poets Page. Also below is a list of previous poem and poets. Please continue sharing.
