Bluestockings Bookstore, Café, & Activist Center
172 Allen Street

Feature Writers: Maria Mazziotti Gillan & Lisa Marie Basile

Hosted by Vittoria Repetto – the hardest working guinea butch dyke poet on the Lower East Side – the jam has showcased the famous, the infamous, the unknown for over a decade. Come out and deliver (up to) 8 minutes of your poetry, prose, songs and spoken word. Visit www.vittoriarepetto.wordpress.com for more. In her new book, “The Place I Call Home,” Maria Mazziotti Gillan paints wonderful pictures of her life via her narrative poems that will make you laugh and cry and every emotion in between. Lisa Marie Basile has recently released a chapbook entitled, “triste:mourning poems” from Dancing Girl Press. The work is a diary entry-like collection of poetic stories, notes and epistolary pieces about people that have vanished or won’t vanish. Lisa Marie Basile often writes about identity and the female perspective.
