Poet Dave Morrison Returns to Camden Public Library

Camden -

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. “All are welcome,” Morrison says, “especially those who don’t like poetry.” Admission is free. A limited edition chapbook, SIX will be offered for sale and signing on this night only.

“Dave Morrison loves his characters—their quirks and clutter, their errors and longings,” says fellow poet Dawn Potter. “He follows them into their houses, their laboratories, their two-bit convenience-store jobs. In ‘Black Crow,’ Morrison writes, ‘there must be something to justify/crow’s obsessive curiosity.’ Crow’s answer, and the poet’s, lifts like a breeze: the urge to dream, to imagine, to stand ‘on the top of a tall mast in the sun . . . until the land [falls] away . . . obsidian star, carved coal angel, heaven above, earth below.’”

“It’s always a treat to hear Dave at a reading,” said Ken Gross, program director at the Camden Public Library. “He carries his rock-and-roll history in his stance and his delivery and his aplomb. We’re very pleased to be able to host him here at the library again!”
