Hotel Tides

408 7th Ave.
Asbury Park, NJ 07740

Wanted: Your ears and your hearts for one hour to enjoy a series of insightful, whimsical and thoughtful readings about the ins and outs and ups and downs of everyday life and love. Robert P. Langdon is a poet living in Northern NJ. Robert lived in San Francisco for 13 years where he taught a creative writing class through the Harvey Milk Institute. His years spent in San Francisco raised his political and social consciousness and helped him develop a strong appreciation for diversity and community in all its forms. He has been writing poetry and the occasional short fiction since the late 1980s. He began writing after being exposed to the poetry of Anne Sexton and discovering, through her writing, that poetry can be exciting and accessible to anyone. Robert's writing tends to focus on issues of identity and he uses poetry as a way to work through personal issues and reflect on meaningful events in his life. Robert's work has been published in the New Brunswick Public Library 14th Annual Poetry Anthology, and in The Normal Review. Kelly Harman was born in Asmara, Ethiopia in the early sixties and has walked the road less traveled ever since. Her childhood was spent overseas, moving to a different country every two years until she came to the U.S. at the age of 16. This experience inspired an adventurous streak and disregard for convention which has yielded a rich life, overflowing with great story material. Two of Kelly's pieces were recently published in an anthology of short stories "New Departures." Please join us. There is free street parking. The event and light fare are free, but there will be a cash bar.
