An Evening with the Muse
Sunday, November 9, 2014 7 p.m.
With Featured Poet
Stephen R. Roberts
Followed by Refreshments, Book Signings and an Open Mic Reading.
Stephen R. Roberts collects books, knives, geodes, gargoyles, poetic lariats, and various other objects of interest to enhance his basic perceptions of a chaotic planet that pays little attention to him, as far as he knows. He was born and raised in Noblesville, Indiana. He graduated from Earlham College several decades ago. He’s retired, after thirty-eight years in the insurance claims business.
He’s been published in forty-eight of our fifty states. The two remaining stubbornly continue to reject him for unknown reasons. He recently won second place in the Wabash Watershed Indiana Poetry Awards in the Urban Poetry division. Over the years he has given readings at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Bloomington, Greenwood, Shelbyville,Columbus, Chicago, and various infamous venues around Indianapolis, including the old poetic watering holes of the Alley Cat Tavern and the Slippery Noodle Inn. He has five published chapbooks. These are: Plastic Belladonna, Pelt Songs – The Steel-Belted Radial Round-Up Poems, A Slash of Waking, Small Fire Speaking In The Rain and Rhubarb Desoto. His full length collection, Almost Music from Between Places,was published by Chatter House Press in 2012.
