Basil Rouskas will read his poetry including poems from his book Redrawing Borders recently published by Finishing Line Press.

Reviewers of his book comment that "… the poems in Redrawing Borders, written in the poet's second language, are poems of translation-not linguistic translation but, rather, a translation of place and spirit…

These poems show us ways in which change is navigated-the ways in which "before" and "after" are reconciled. Redrawing Borders is a journey not to be missed..."

Ray Brown will read his poetry including poems from his recently published book "I Have His Letters Still."

Reviewers of his work have described his poetry a "language that will capture your imagination - entice you to relax in the setting - reminisce - challenge you, at times, to think - and will constantly entertain you."

Other reviewers add "… His language is crafted with depth but with a writing style that allows everyone to be a casual reader - sit in their favorite chair - savor the experience, share in the emotion, think about life's questions raised…"
