PRLog (Press Release) - Apr. 7, 2011 - Monday Night Poetry & Music at East Bay Meeting House welcomes Raleigh-based award-winning poet Alice Osborn on Monday, April 25th from 8-10 pm. Alice will read selections from her new book, Unfinished Projects (Main Street Rag Publishing Co., 2010) at Monday Night Poetry & Music, which is a show of poetry and music with a featured reader starting the night followed by an open mic. East Bay Meeting House is located 160 East Bay St. Charleston, South Carolina.

Jim Lundy, the host of Monday Night Poetry & Music says, “Our series takes place every Monday night with each show having a featured poet or musician followed by an open mic. We have visitors from Chicago, New York, and L.A. tell us how they don’t have anything like where they live. Our event continues to be a successful gathering spot in the heart of Charleston where poets, musicians, aspiring writers and spoken word artists can come together and share their experiences.”

Alice Osborn says, “I’m so thrilled to read in Charleston since several of my poems grew out of my experience while I lived, worked and sailed here in the late 1990s. Jim Lundy does an amazing job of bringing so many talented poets and artists together from the Southeast every week of the year.”

Homer Hickam, author of Rocket Boys/October Sky and The Dinosaur Hunter, says this about Alice Osborn’s poetry:
“She uses words like a master potter—molding the clay of the mind into vessels that hold not things, but life, place, and time.”

David T. Manning, author of The Flower Sermon, says, “Alice Osborn convincingly shows us in the poem ‘Challenger 7,’ how tragedy, both national and personal, is elevated to a cosmic/spiritual domain where the Pleiades mourn the tragedy in the astronauts’ own ‘living room’. There are many scenes in this most intimate collection that will live long with the reader.”
            
Born in Washington D.C. the winter after Watergate to a French mother and a civil servant father, Alice Osborn came of age in Charleston and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. She is a graduate of Virginia Tech and North Carolina State who served as a ROTC cadet, waitress, makeup artist and high school teacher. Alice Osborn uses all of her experiences now as an instigator of writing happenings and as a creative writing teacher to students ages 9-90. Her work has appeared in Raleigh’s News and Observer, The Pedestal Magazine, and in numerous journals and anthologies. She lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, with her husband and two children.
