Block Island Reading

I’m very excited about this weekend’s reading on Block Island. Hope you can make it!

Friday, May 28
Reading with Lisa Starr, music by Virginia Dare
Soup and Song coffeehouse
Block Island, RI, 7 p.m.

January G. O'Neil will give a reading of poems from her book Underlife at the Soup and Song coffeehouse on Block Island, RI. The program will include a reading by Lisa Starr, poet laureate of Rhode Island and author of Mad with Yellow, and songs by Block Island folk singer Virginia Dare.

Soup and Song is located in the Harbor Church just up the hill from the Point Judith-Block Island ferry in Old Harbor. Free soup and sandwiches are offered at 6:30 p.m. Coffee and baked goods, also free, are available through the performances. Donations are received which go to the artists. Soup and Song is sponsored by the Block Island Prevention Task Force and Harbor Church.

One of Daniel Berrigan's best book of poems was about his sojourn at Block Island (from where he was eventually arrested by the FBI) called (guess) "Block Island".
