David Ruekberg 0
Join me for an evening of poetry and music at the Little Theatre in Rochester, NY. I will be reading from my second book, Hour of the Green Light, as well as new work from my Little Coffins manuscript. The evening begins at 5 pm with Eastman School of Music jazz trumpeter Mike Kaupa. At 5:30 WXXI classical music director and host Mona Seghatoleslami will introduce the featured poet. The featured reader for the evening is Elizabeth Johnston Ambrose. I will be reading with seven other guest poets, including Albert Abonado, Melissa Balmain, Larry Berger, Jessica Cuello, Jonathan Everitt, Jennifer Maloney, and Almeta Whitis. Elizabeth Johnston Ambrose is a recipient of the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching (2014). She teaches courses in Women in Literature, Women in Popular Culture, Female Iconicity, and Girls Studies. Her chapbook Imago, Dei won the 2021 Rattle Chapbook Poetry Prize. Guest poets will read for about five minutes each. Notable guest poets include: Many thanks to Bart White for curating The "Little" Poetry Series!
