is proud to present: 

Postponed until October or November

A memoriam for the 50th anniversary of the deaths 
of Langston Hughes, Dorothy Parker and Carl Sandburg: 
Readings by Arnie Reisman, Fan Ogilvie and Jennifer Smith Turner

Hosted by Arnie Reisman
Admission $10


As the weather warmed up in 1967 - fifty years ago this summer - three giants on the landscape 
of American verse - passed into history: Langston Hughes, Dorothy Parker and Carl Sandburg. 
Three very different voices, yet three very distinctive American voices. They left us with poems 
of inspiration, perspiration and wit. They gave us observations, perceptions and truisms. 
They gave us pictures of life in this country as it approached the mid-twentieth century. 

They gave us something to think about. In terms of poetic forms, they played with tradition 
and created their own styles. To showcase what we lost 50 years ago, poets Jennifer Smith Turner, 
Fan Ogilvie and Arnie Reisman will present a reading Tuesday, August 22, at Featherstone at 5pm. 



Bunch of Grapes Bookstore will offer poetry books for purchase when available.
