Anna Zappoli Features at Palabra!
an evening of poetry hosted by Ted Washington
Featured reader Anna Zappoli
She will be accompanied by her son Pall Jenkins.
After moving to the United States from Catania,Italy, Anna Zappoli chronicled her life living in another country while developing herself as an artist. From working in Coffee shops to featuring in galleries, Anna kept record of her life in the form of scrapbooks, journals, flyers, tickets, and poems written on her typewriter. Anna conjures up lyrically melodic and emotionally dense poetry. Though deeply personal, her work highlights loneliness, beauty, joy and change that resonates potently with the core of the human condition.
After the featured reading we will have an open mic for anyone who wants to read. Everyone is welcome to come and share a poem, song lyrics, reading or a short story or just bring your ears for listening and enjoy the evening. Original poetry is always appreciated. Everyone needs some place to speak their minds and Palabra is that place. We are an inclusive and supportive group that aim to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, positive environment, so all talent levels are welcome.
Doors open at 6:30pm and Poetry starts at 7:00pm sharp! We will have a sign-up sheet available at the counter. Each poet will speak for 3-5 minutes each so that everyone who wants to read can have a chance! Palabra poetry night will be every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.
