One of my favorite poets Charles Rafferty (Man on the Tower, The Unleashable Dog etc etc) gave a dynamic reading Monday (9/8/24) evening at the Booth Library in Newtown at an event called Three Wordsmiths. On the bill and just as wonderful were Barry Dougherty, head writer for Friars Club Roast and playwright, actor, performance poet Patrick Kearney. Wow.
The triple bill drew a large audience leaving few empty seats in the program room - and they wowed that audience. Frankly we loved them all! They were funny unpredictable and so hysterically human.
