NOVEMBER 22 - POET DENNIS FORMENTO TO READ AT SUNDAYS@4 

 

 

This Sunday (Nov. 22), poet Dennis Formento will read a selection of his latest works at BRG's Sundays@4 series. As always, this event is free and open to the public.

 

A poet and free-jazz/free-verse performer, Formento lives in Slidell, Louisiana. He has been published in the Lummox Poetry Anthology (Lummox Press, 2014), the Maple Leaf Rag V (Portals Press, 2014), and on the blog "Water, Water Everywhere." Formento’s latest book is Cineplex (Paper Press, 2014). He teaches English at Delgado Community College and is New Orleans’s coordinator for 100 Thousand Poets for Change, a worldwide movement for peace and sustainability.
"Music and art can confront and free us from the mind and spirit prison because they  get us out of the cerebral chatter of the frontal lobes and allow our feelings to change instantaneously."

The author of eight chapbooks and two full-length collections of poetry, he has read at the prestigious Venice Biennale and at Locanda Hermann in Rome. Formento also studied with the founders of beat poetry and its followers, namely Allen Ginsberg, Anne Waldman and Diane di Prima.
