WORD THURSDAYS – FEATURING PAUL PINES
September 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Paul Pines (Glens Falls, NY) grew up in Brooklyn and passed the early 60s on the Lower East Side of New York, then shipped out as a Merchant Seaman, spending part of 65/66 in Vietnam. His Bowery jazz club, The Tin Palace, in the 70s served as the setting for his novel, The Tin Angel (Morrow, 1983). Redemption, a second novel, explores the genocide of Guatemalan Mayans. Memoirs, My Brother’s Madness (Curbstone Press, 2007), and the just released Trolling with the Fisher King, (Chiron Publications) explore themes of wounding and healing. He has published 14 poetry collections, most recently Gathering Sparks (Marsh Hawk Press). The selected, A Furnace in the Shadows, is forthcoming from Dos Madres Press. Poems set by composer Daniel Asia appear on the Summit label. Pines is the editor of Juan Gelman’s selected poems Dark Times/ Filled with Light (Open Letters Press, 2012). He has conducted workshops for the National Writers Voice and lectured for the National Endowment for the Humanities. Paul Pines lives in Glens Falls, NY, where he is a psychotherapist in private practice, and hosts the Lake George Jazz Weekend. Website: paulpines.com.
