Dave Morrison – Poetry Rocks @ Camden Opera House
Feb 2 @ 7:00 pm
Dave Morrison - Poetry Rocks @ Camden Opera House | Camden | Maine | United States
Poems of Dave Morrison crossing a rope bridge of simple guitar grooves. (3rd Floor Harbor View Room)
Poet Dave Morrison will perform his music/poetry hybrid Poetry Rocks at the Camden Opera House (3rd floor – Harbor View Room) on Friday, February 2 at 7 pm.  All are welcome, admission is free.  Morrison will also be reading from his new collection Welcome Homesick.  Copies will be available for purchase and signing.
“Before settling in coastal Maine and publishing twelve books of poetry, Dave Morrison spent years playing guitar in rock & roll bars in Boston and New York City. Poetry Rocks merges Morrison’s life on the stage with his life on the page as his poems cross the thin rope bridge of simple guitar grooves.
Poetry Rocks is not songs, and not exactly poems. Morrison delivers his poems over simple looping guitar grooves—created from scratch for the audience in real time—that serve as distinct musical frames for each poem.” (from Maine Writers and Publisher’s Alliance)
“…a hearty weed in the garden of American poetry.” P.H. Madore, Dispatch
“There is no voice quite like his. What shines in every poem is musical sound and rhythm, grittiness, reality, humor, and the rare ability to tackle serious subjects without taking himself too seriously. There is a wonderful, refreshing lack of pretentiousness and self-pity in all his poems and books.” Alice Persons, Editor, and Publisher, Moon Pie Press
“By tapping into his tumultuous past, Morrison has created work that is not only technically sound but viscerally engaging. His is no passive verse; it grabs you by the collar and demands your attention.” Allen Adams, themaineedge.com
“sharp, revealing imagery in crisp and subtle but tightly rhythmic language” Dana Wilde – Bangor Daily News
Poetry-haters welcome.

Understanding White Privilege @ Ferry Beach Park Association
Feb 3 @ 12:00 pm – Feb 4 @ 1:00 pm

Understanding privilege at a time when there is a rise in violence against persons of color, immigrants, Muslims, Jews, gays, lesbians and queers is not only essential but calls us again to restore the roots of universal love in our practice of this thing called life!

In this 9-hour mini-conference, we will explore the social roles of whiteness, maleness and heterosexuality, as the norm while everything else is “other.” Understanding privilege in its varying forms and ways to engage individuals in dialogue about privilege will be the goals of the conference. This intersectionality of social identities will be explored in our time together. Conferees will leave with a commitment to a practice, which contributes to creating a safer world for all of us; and tools to begin that process.
