Poetry Thurdays features Gene Hosey, Harrisburg’s First poet laureate at Midtown
Cinema's Reel Cafe, May 12.
Gene Hosey directed the celebrated Paper Sword poetry series at the Art Association of HarrPoetry Thurdays features Gene Hosey, Harrisburg’s First poet laureate at Midtown
isburg. He's been published in a wide assortment of literary journals, including Fledgling Rag, Megaera, and Experimental Forest.
Gene has a outstanding verse collection, The Gravity of Titles (Musser publications, 1998). He’s a compelling performer.
At Harrisburg's Susquehanna Art Museum, in 2006, Hosey conducted a wildly successful Poetry Cartel special tribute to John Cage: “the Night of the Living Pianos.”
This, from Hosey's website: "Gene knew little of what was to await him once he escaped the coal dusted hills of Forty Fort, Pennsylvania. Those hills still burn but Gene got out just in time. He now lives the storybook American life in a patch called Lisburn, Pennsylvania with his creative wife and companion, Terrie. ….He reminds us that we are moving toward what Dennis Hopper, paraphrasing Andy Warhol, paraphrasing Duchamp, described as a time when the 'artist' will merely point, and whatever it is the artist points at is 'art'."
Midtown Cinema is located at 250 Reily Street in Harrisburg. This
event is hosted by the Almost Uptown Poetry Cartel. An open reading,
which begins at 7pm, will lead into the feature presentation. More
