Feb 24-- Cool Julia Tilley's Frost-Stoned Verse
Poetry Thurdays will feature cool Julia Tilley at the Midtown Cinema's Reel Cafe, February 24. The Midtown Cinema is located at 250 Reily Street in Harrisburg's cultural corridor.
Performance artist/poet Tilley urges peeps to try and bring at least one poem about ice, rime or hoar frost.
Her primary theme: ICE. Tilley will do several winter/ice poems (along with other work) and plans to place a small, if ephemeral, poetry installation in front of the cinema called "Frost Stone." That is, if the weather is good-- i.e. brutally cold (keep yr fingers crossed). Tilley hopes to read her cool verse pre-frozen in ice tablets. She'll wear gloves of course.
She's also considering wearing Tonya Harding skating attire for the event and, in that case, one would be well advised not to tell Tilley to "break a leg" before the event.
The Tilley/Frost Stone happening will be hosted by the Almost Uptown Poetry Cartel. An open poetry reading, which begins at 7pm, will precede the feature presentation. More information: (717) 909-6566. http://www.almostuptown.com
