The following is a press release from Big Blue Marble Bookstore.
On Thursday, October 17 at 7:00 PM, poet Mike Cohen will read from his collection Between the I’s and all proceeds from the sale of his book will benefit Big Blue Marble Bookstore’s efforts to get an ecommerce website up and running.
Currently Mike hosts Poetry Aloud and Alive, a popular monthly poetry program in its eighth year at Mt. Airy’s Big Blue Marble Bookstore. “I'd just like … to thank Big Blue Marble for being such an asset to the community and a gracious host to Poetry Aloud and Alive,” Cohen said.
Cohen’s poetic philosophy is: “Poetry doesn’t have the answers, it’s just a beautiful way of putting the questions.”
Reflective, philosophical, and humorous, Cohen's writing is an ongoing attempt to make sense of this life and this universe.
It addresses the Big Bang and the little bumps as well. There is no topic too meaningful or too nonsensical.
Mike’s poetry has appeared in the Mad Poets Review, Poetry Forum Anthology, Fox Chase Review, Schuylkill Valley Journal, the Mt. Airy Times Express, and the Philadelphia Daily News.
His poetic presentations have been featured in programs at various schools, bookstores, coffee shops, and libraries. His poems have been aired on SKN radio. Mike has served as a judge in the Montgomery County Poet Laureate competition. Some of Mike’s poetry can be seen and heard on the web by visiting http://mikecohensays.com/.
