DVD Screening Monday Night- Pittsburgh Center for the Arts

Many of you know my next career is filmmaker!   And on Monday 11/15 my second film will be screened.  The first one was Dorothy Holley: Quart Jar Poet. The doors open at 7.  The screening starts at 7:30 and the film is one hour in length.  Michael Wurster: The City Books Session. Simmons Hall (which is the basement)  Fifth Ave at Shady Avenue.  Light Refreshments. Free and open to the public. Filmed and edited by me.  A little shameless self-promotion.  Michael Wurster was one of the original founders of the Pittsburgh Poetry Exchange and many people have taken classes from him.  He taught at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts for 18 years.  I filmed it over 4 years ago and am very glad to have completed the film.  You will hear him read a few of his poems and be interviewed by me.  If you are a former student you might want a copy of the DVD which will be on sale for $10. Michael is bringing copies of his latest book as well.  The British Detective.  Excellent music brings the film to life. Used with permission from songwriter Christopher Jones from his Heartland Variations CD.  Hope you can come.
