Gene Hosey, award-winning poet, performer, original poet laureate of Harrisburg, founding member of the nationally known poets and performers group, "The Paper Sword", will be featured poet at the Midtown Scholar’s Poetry Thursdays, hosted by the Almost Uptown’s Poetry Cartel..

His publications include poetry and reviews in numerous literary journals such as New Letters, Cutthroat Journal of the Arts, One Trick Pony Review, Fledgling Rag, New East Coast Literary Wave, Experimental Forest, and Black Magnolias as well as spoken word CDs, and four amazing verse collections.

Hosey performs vigorously along the Eastern Seaboard, sometimes with a band. Sometimes with simply his own vibrant fervor! He lives a storybook American life in a place called Lisburn, with his artist wife and creative companion, Terrie.

Gene Hosey, a dynamic performer and visionary, 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 becomes 'art'.

Hosey’s reading will be preceded by a brief open reading. Come early as seating is limited. Special verse performances coming soon by Annie Ginder, and Rick Kearns. The Midtown Scholar Bookstore is located at 1302 North Third Street, Harrisburg, PA 17102 , Phone: 717.236.1680.


PLUS: Here's a sample of Hosey, versifying--

True, in principle, proverbs and reverb provide ample direction for everyone. --Elfred Vito-Januski
