We, at New Haven Review, like the Poetry Institute, which holds an open mike reading every third Thursday at the Institute Library in downtown New Haven at 847 Chapel Street. This Thursday, December 16, at 6:30 p.m., they are featuring our personal favorite—because he’s one of our authors-- New Haven’s own Charles Douthat.
From the website:
New Haven celebrates the publication of Charles Douthat’s first collection, Blue for Oceans forthcoming from NHR Books.
Born in California, Charles graduated from Stanford University, raised a son and daughter in New Haven, Connecticut where he practices law. Charles began to read and write poetry during a long mid-life illness and today writes about the usual predicaments: family, love, time and memory. Since then, his poems have been published in many journals and magazines. A few have won prizes. We’ve enjoyed his work at our open mic; Please join us to support Charles’ new venture: www.charlesdouthat.com.
About the potluck: Please feel free to bring an a small [room temperature] appetizer or dessert snack to share!
