On Friday, February 4th, MFA poetry candidates J. Bruce Fuller and William Lusk Coppage will give a reading of their work at The Porch Coffeehouse and Cafe at 7 pm. The Porch initiated a monthly poetry series to be held on the first Friday of each month. Last month members from the Bayou Writers Group read at the inaugural installation for the series. Next month, on Friday, March 4th, Louisiana Poet Laureate Darrell Bourque will give a solo reading.
I am extremely excited to be reading again with friend and poet, J. Bruce Fuller. If you remember, we read together this past summer at Ole Miss for the Southern Writers/Southern Writing conference.
Also, if you live in Lake Charles and are not familiar with The Porch, please follow the link. Not only do they serve up gourmet coffee, they have a full kitchen and bar. On the weekend they have live music.
