A new poetry performance series, Island Voices, continues at Che’s Lounge on Wednesday, July 22nd at 7:30 p.m. Clark Myers will host the event, with poets Jill Jupen, Don Nitchie and John Maloney performing their work, followed by an open reading. All Island poets are invited.

The Island Voices series, which continues through the summer, is a varied program tapping a wide pool of Island poets, including spoken word performers, rappers and freestylers, slam poets, singer-songwriters, and free-verse and traditional forms poets. The organizers of the new Island Voices series, Linda Black and Michael West, invite Island poets of all ages, styles, and levels of accomplishment to come and share their work. Please mark your calendars for Island Voices at Che’s on July 22, August 5 and 19, and September 9 and 23.
