Portland Poetry Series: Essence

  • McQuixote Books & Coffee 1512 Portland Ave Louisville, KY 40203 United States (map)

Join us as we celebrate the first year of the Portland Poetry Series. We will be listening to Amelia S. Robinson, Alexis Stix Brown, and Mackenzie Berry. All three have been shaking up the scene in Louisville with their talents.

As usual, we will have a small open mic portion for those that wish to contribute. McQuixote Books & Coffee will be open for drinks and snacks and the reading will take place in the common room just behind the shop.

In addition to composing poems and stories, she creates visual and performance arts. She presents spoken word under... the name Dawn’s Early Light and continues to work toward her dream of returning to the nature and country living that so deeply influenced her youth.
The Hand That Holds The Earth Book is the first publication of writing by Amelia S. Robinson. She presents this collection of poetry and prose with the intention of raising the vibration of love and magic in our daily lives and reminding us of the precious gifts of Earth and Spirit that surround us and are within us all.
