March 14, 2012 - PRLog -- Charleston, SC—Monday Night Poetry & Music at East Bay Meeting House welcomes Raleigh-based award-winning poet Alice Osborn on Monday, April 23rd from 8-10 pm. Alice will read selections from her new book, After the Steaming Stops (Main Street Rag Publishing Co., 2012) 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 it 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 return to Monday Night Poetry & Music during National Poetry Month. Jim Lundy does an amazing job of bringing so many talented poets and artists together from the Southeast every week of the year. Hands down, reading at MNP & M last year was one of the best events of my book tour and I’m looking forward to another fantastic night.”

What They Are Saying About After the Steaming Stops

Alice Osborn’s After the Steaming Stops is a provocative family invocation—at once precisely journalistic and richly imagined. Nothing goes unnoticed. Osborn’s eye, and what it falls upon, is her enduring story, leavened with unflinching candor. These poems are wonderfully narrative, and cannily crafted, luring the reader in with their easy inviting gait. These poems never stop steaming.
—Joseph Bathanti, poet and novelist of Boone, NC

This is a book crammed with images, explicit descriptions, characters and emotions. It needs to be read.—Sara Claytor, poet of Carrboro, NC
