A total of 37 listened to one of London’s best poets, Susan Downe, and a dozen open mic readers, in the Greek atmosphere of Mykonos Restaurant while Irish novelist Emma Donoghue read from her novels at Landon. Even Susan Downe admitted wishing she could have attended the Donoghue event. We learned about the schedule conflict too late to change the date of the open mic.
However, those who couldn’t attend were able to view our entire poetry event on high-definition video on our website, the first event videography donated by videographer Kevin Austin of Hawkeye Video Productions.
Before the poetry began, the audience was treated to the beautiful vocals and celtic harp of Jennifer White, accompanied by percussionist Robert McMaster.
