WCW—Hilary Sideris & Rick Mullin—August 7

For the regal month of August, the Gang of Five is excited to co-feature Hilary Sideris and Rick Mullin, two poets of great talent and majestic expertise.

Please join us on Wednesday, August 7th, 2019, 7:00 PM, at the Williams Center, One Williams Plaza in Rutherford, NJ, to hear them.

About our features:

Hilary Sideris’ poetry has appeared in numerous print and online publications. She is the author of Most Likely to Die (Poets Wear Prada), The Inclination to Make Waves (Big Wonderful), Un Amore Veloce (Kelsay) and, most recently, The Silent B (Dos Madres 2019).

The poet George Held wrote of her latest collection: “Do not read The Silent B unless you love John Donne, Cole Porter, and Richard Pryor; unless you dote on word-play, satire, and wit; unless you cherish the silent “b” in “dumb,” cognates for “fire,” and the leap from “gaffe” to “laugh”; and unless you feel for the dyslexic, the dysphemic, and the different.”

Rick Mullin’s poetry has been published in various journals and anthologies. He is the author of seven volumes of poetry and two chapbooks, including Soutine (Dos Madres Press), a biographical novel in verse written in terza rima, and his most recent collection, Lullaby and Wheel (Kelsay Books, 2019).

The poet Anton Yakovlev wrote of Rick’s poetry: “From the moment you read the first poems in Lullaby and Wheel, you know you are in the hands of a master. Rick Mullin’s voice is one of the most distinctive and recognizable in metrical poetry today, and this collection sees the poet at the top of his form. Effortlessly switching from the whimsical to the philosophical to the deeply personal to the fanciful and again to the personal, these profoundly enriching poems guide the reader through a whirlwind of emotions and mindsets, recognizable and startling in equal measure.”

Please note: We must now pay $100 per month rent for the use the Williams Center for our readings. This is in addition to the $100 per month rent the Red Wheelbarrow workshop must pay for the use of their space in the Williams Center.

We need your help to survive and continue to hold our monthly readings. We will be asking for donations. A $5 per person donation is suggested. If we all contribute, we can pay the rent!
