Please join us for this exciting program:
SENSATIONS MAGAZINE concludes its three-year, six-issue "American Century" series with the debut of Issue 48, "21st Century America," in the Stanley Kunitz Conference Room at Poets House. The new Poets House facility will be a key location for American poetry in the 21st century, given their added storage space and 50-year lease, making it the ideal location to debut "21st Century America ." Readers will be limited to reading poems published in SENSATIONS MAGAZINE Issues 47 and 48 only, and there is no open mic. Also, Publisher David Messineo will conclude his 2010 FORMAL Tour at this location, AND John J. Trause will be presenting his own poetry from Issue 48, "21st Century America " and interpreting the work of Jaruth Jones.

Love & Peace,
SENSATIONS MAGAZINE is pleased to be the first New Jersey literary magazine to debut a new issue at the new Poets House, 10 River Terrace, in lower Manhattan, and looks forward to your participation in what should be a sensational afternoon. The reading will be videotaped, so please dress nicely. (I'll be in a tuxedo, but formal attire is not required.)
SENSATIONS MAGAZINE Issue 48, "21st Century America," Fall/Winter 2010 (last of the six-part "American Century" series) will debut this Saturday, November 20, 4-6pm, at the Stanley Kunitz Conference Room. The reading also will include the conclusion of the 2010 Formal Tour by David Messineo, who will read a 5-poem feature set from FORMAL, in tuxedo, to close out his tour. That reading will fall after the "September 11, 2001" section, and before the "America , 2011-2100" section.
As of this writing, we are expecting 13 poets from 4 states in attendance.
Coming from New Hampshire: Dianalee Velie.
Coming from Rhode Island : Brett Rutherford.
Coming from New York state and city: Dennis Wayne Bressack, Aza Derman, Davidson Garrett, Steven Koenig, Eugenia Macer-Story, and Jacqueline de Weever.
Coming from New Jersey : David Messineo, Cheryl Moore, Pina Pipino, Susanna Rich, and John J. Trause.
Others confirmed as attending: Eric Kleber de Freitas, Marilyn Hartl, and Mort Rich.
In short, this will be our largest gathering of published SENSATIONS MAGAZINE poets since our 20th anniversary celebrations in 2008.
Paul Nash and Denise la Neve will be on the road to Indiana, and send best wishes to all. Other published poets have been invited to read, so that number may go up - and there may be one or two surprise appearances, as well. Additional poets - from Australia , North Carolina , New York , and Tennessee - send regrets they cannot attend.
There will be no open mic opportunity for anyone not published in Sensations Magazine.
While this is a free to attend event, we encourage guests to bring $20 if they wish to purchase a copy of Formal, or $25 if they wish to purchase a subscription that includes Issue 48. Parents should not bring children to this event.
The room will open around 3:45, and we'll start the reading right at 4pm. Some of you might want to arrive much earlier, so you can tour the facility and see some of their 50,000 volume poetry collection.
ARRIVAL BY CAR/SUBWAY
Paid parking in the area is approximately $10 per hour. You will have to browse the surrounding blocks for metered or paid parking.
If coming by subway, you can take the 1, 2, 3, A, or C to Chambers Street . Walk Chambers toward the Hudson River until it ends at Rockefeller Park and River Terrace. Turn left on River Terrace. Poets House is at 10 River Terrace, near the corner of Murray Street.
