Snow, ice won’t derail White Plains poetry SLAM


“Our 1st Wednesday Poetry SLAM and Open Mic will take place tonight,” boasts White Plains librarian Miriam Varian.

It will  be Feb. 2 “as planned,” she said.

And really, after so many days stuck inside and/or shoveling snow wouldn’t this be a nice literary evening?

The program is at 7 p.m. and will feature Adam Falkner, an award-winning New York City-based poet and a seasoned veteran of the National Poetry Slam, will be our feature.  Jaylee Alde, who was scheduled to be our guest, will not be able to make it.

Please register at 6:30 if you’d like to slam or take part in our open mic, Varian suggests.

The Poetry SLAM is a project of the White Plains Library Foundation and is co-hosted by our favorite slammaster, Eric ZORK Alan.

The White Plains Public Library is at 100 Martine Ave.

About this blog
Four longtime Journal News reporters share their insights about fiction, non-fiction, poetry and short stories by bringing books discussions online and exploring the local literati scene. Lots of people say they are booklovers, but Elizabeth Ganga, Barbara Livingston Nackman, Ken Valenti and Randi Weiner really are!

What they blog about
Book Notes: An ongoing chat about events, authors and news items about books, libraries, authors and everything literary from metro news reporters Barbara Livingston Nackman and Elizabeth Ganga. Barbara has been a reporter for The Journal News since 1997. She covers municipalities in Putnam County and keeps track of book events everywhere - and began her career writing about books and libraries. Lisa has been a reporter for The Journal News since 2000, after working at several newspapers in Connecticut. She has covered cities and town in sourthern and northern Westchester and is a big Jane Austen fan (though she reads everything from history to mysteries). Both reporters work out of the Mount Kisco bureau and frequently trade tidbits about books and events.

Novel Pursuits: Ken Valenti sheds light on his ongoing experiences as a novelist and poet. He talks about his trials and tribulations including musings about projects, readings, successes, and even insights into what he is reading and finds interesting. A reporter for The Journal News and its forerunners for more than 20 years, Ken now covers transportation. His first love has been writing fiction, but he's only begun pursuing that dream in recent years. He has been a reader and fiction editor for the journal Inkwell, and has published one short story in another fiction journal.

Seasoned Works: Randi Weiner dishes up an ongoing discussion about all books - old and savory. Though Randi keeps readers abreast of school issues most days and reads lots of children's and young adult books, current science fiction and murder mysteries, her overriding passion is older works generally written before 1940. She chats online about favorites and newly discovered treasures as well as book exhibits and talks related to the dusty, the musty and the marvelous illustrators of the past. She has been a reporter since 1976, with Gannett since 1989. And for the record, she says she has a personal library of more than 4,000 volumes.
