Join the Celebration of Poet Lamont Steptoe

Poet M. Nzadi Keita 
Poet Lamont Steptoe
I had the honor of hearing two of Philly's finest poets, M. Nzadi Keita and Lamont Steptoe read last night as part of the Philadelphia Free Library's Monday Poets Reading Series.
Do check out Keita's newest collection, Brief Evidence of Heaven (2014), which imagines how free-born, illiterate Anna Murray Douglass saw the world as an independent woman, mother, abolitionist, and wife to Frederick Douglass. And, of course, do check out Steptoe's Meditations in Congo Square.


Also, join Moonstone Poetry @ Brandywine Workshop
this Saturday to celebrate Lamont Steptoe’s 67th birthday and his remarkable and generous contribution to Philadelphia’s literary landscape. A poet / photographer / publisher, Steptoe is the author and/or editor of fifteen poetry collections, the latest of which is Meditations in Congo Square. He is
the recipient of so many awards including the winner of an American Book Award and a Pew Fellowship in the Arts.
