CAMDEN – Poet, Dave Morrison, will be reading new work at the Camden Public Library at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 28. Morrison will read from his newest collection, SIX, and also from his work-in-progress Clubland featuring poems about rock bars written in verse. ‚ÄúAll are welcome,‚ÄĚ Morrison says, ‚Äúespecially those who don‚Äôt like poetry.‚ÄĚ Admission is free. A limited edition chapbook, SIX will be offered for sale and signing on this night only.
‚ÄúDave Morrison loves his characters‚ÄĒtheir quirks and clutter, their errors and longings,‚ÄĚ says fellow poet Dawn Potter. ‚ÄúHe follows them into their houses, their laboratories, their two-bit convenience-store jobs. In ‚ÄėBlack Crow,‚Äô Morrison writes, ‚Äėthere must be something to justify/crow‚Äôs obsessive curiosity.‚Äô Crow‚Äôs answer, and the poet‚Äôs, lifts like a breeze: the urge to dream, to imagine, to stand ‚Äėon the top of a tall mast in the sun . . . until the land [falls] away . . . obsidian star, carved coal angel, heaven above, earth below.‚Äô‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs always a treat to hear Dave at a reading,‚ÄĚ said Ken Gross, program director at the Camden Public Library. ‚ÄúHe carries his rock-and-roll history in his stance and his delivery and his aplomb. We‚Äôre very pleased to be able to host him here at the library again!‚ÄĚ
