Poetry On Track At ROTA

Everyone was all aboard for an evening of train haiku presented by local poet Dr. Richard Schnell.

Schnell was the featured performer at Open Stage/Poetry Night, an event held twice a month at the ROTA Studios And Gallery, 19 Clinton Street.  He was accompanied by musical guests Catie and George Wurster (upright base and harmonica, respectively) who bridged poetry segments with instrumental trestles.

Schnell's presentation, "Trains and Haiku: Crosscurrents," included train haiku by various North American poets, each poem identified by rail line, including his own work describing Adirondack settings.  He noted that Jack Kerouac also wrote train haiku, sharing a few examples.

For more information about Open Stage Poetry Night and other events, contact ROTA via email at rotagallery(at)gmail(dot)com or by phone, (518) 314-9872.
