FPAC: Stone Soup Poetry Night
Stone Soup was founded over thirty years ago by the Boston poet Jack Powers. Though it’s origins are firmly footed in the Beats (highlights over the years have included Gregory Corso, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Allen Ginsberg, and local figure John Wieners), the weekly gathering has included all styles of poetry at one time or another. With the publication of a recent anthology and the hosting and recording of the series being carried on faithfully by such notable figures as Bill Perrault, Stone Soup will continue to invite, seek out and feature the most interesting voices in the Boston area and beyond.
David P. Miller’s collection, Bend in the Stair, was published by Lily Poetry Review Books in 2021. Sprawled Asleep was published by Nixes Mate Books in 2019. His poems have appeared in Meat for Tea, Denver Quarterly, The Poetry Porch, subTerrain, Muddy River Poetry Review, Constellations, Lily Poetry Review, Caustic Frolic, Clementine Unbound, and Nixes Mate Review, among others. He lives with his wife, the visual artist Jane Wiley, in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts.
