Coming up on May 26, Rick Kearns and John Catalano will be featured performers. One of the duo just might strum a stringed instrument and the other may intone poetry.

Nothing is set in stone. It'll all resound and/or resolve around 8 pm on the 26th. One Night Only! Hey, everything's waiting for you.

John Catalano is the godfather of guitar and music in Central Pennsylvania. Rick Kearns is currently Harrisburg's Poet Laureate.

Next week, May 19, it's Onomatopoeia Thursday. Our annual reading featuring passionate imitations of sounds made by, or associated with, their referent. Wha? You know, whiz, bang! burrrp, kerflooie!

Like sounds from dinosaur grunts to whirring star-ship engines, choking on a peach pit anapestically, or gargling “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”?

ArgGHHhh! I mean, you could just read a sonically-neutral regular poem if you like.
We only suggest, we don't bully.

Lo! Disharmony is but a paradox.
