An Afternoon of Verse

Posted by on Apr 7, 2018 in | 0 comments

Celebrate National Poetry Month with readings by poets Mohsen Harandi and Anthony Roberts at The Book Garden in Frenchtown. The event will be held on Saturday, April 7th at 3pm. Mohsen Harandi’s collection, Midnight Connections, offers simple expressions and deep visualizations of pre-existence, birth, the purpose of life, creativity, nature, love, death and reincarnation. Born and raised in Tehran, Harandi’s work provides his unique view into the soul of Persian poetry. When Harandi isn’t writing he is working as an engineering scientist. Poet Anthony Roberts takes readers to the gritty streets of Baltimore 30 years ago, today and back again in Pigtown. His poetry leaps off the page with an unflinching fury wrapped in a deep desire to reach for the light through the darkness and to speak for the silent. Both poets also draw inspiration from the Delaware River Valley they call home. The reading will be on Saturday, April 7th from 3pm to 4:30pm at The Book Garden, 28 Bridge Street, Frenchtown, NJ. 908-996-2022; contact@bookgarde.biz. Refreshments will be...

Vist the Book Garden Author’s Room at Milford Alive

Posted by on Sep 6, 2017 in In The News | 0 comments

This year’s Milford Alive event will feature several local authors from the surrounding area. The Authors’ Table, sponsored by The Book Garden, will be located by the grist mill near the Milford Bridge. Milford Alive is Saturday, Sept. 23 from 11:00am to 5pm. The following authors will be featured this year: Pete Tucker, author of Memoirs of a Jersey Farm Boy, is a life-long resident of Pittstown, NJ. His farm is in the heart of agricultural area of Hunterdon County. Meaning no disrespect to anyone’s feats of higher learning, he holds a Doctorate degree from Hard Knocks University in Pittstown where his career entailed a quizzical mixture of occupations and assiduous study. He retired at 49 years old after selling his co-owned Tucker Publishing Co. in Flemington, New Jersey. Tucker and his wife, Judy, own most of the original family farm where they watch the horses graze and the hay being baled. Somebody has to do it! Tucker attributes many of his life’s rewards and accomplishments to early life on the farm. Thérese Halscheid’s collection Frozen Latitudes, the barren and timeless landscape of Alaska becomes a metaphor for places frozen in time when her father Charles, suffered brain damage. Woven among these pages are journey poems of other locales, which share the interchangeability of nature and human nature. Previous poetry collections include Powertalk, Without Home, Uncommon Geography, which won a finalist award for the Paterson Poetry Book Prize; and Greatest Hits, a chapbook award from Pudding House Publications. Her poetry, essays and short stories have appeared in magazines such as The Gettysburg Review, Tampa Review, Sou’wester, Tiferet, among others. She has received Fellowships from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation and NJ State Council on the Arts. Denny Daikeler, is a retired Interior Designer and an ordained Interfaith Minister.
