Dan Vera is featured poet November 6 at Harrisburg's Midtown Scholar

“The poetry of Dan Vera is clear, strong, honest and funny. He’s the sharp-eyed observer in the corner who doesn't say much but makes every word count.” --Martín Espada

Dan Vera is the featured poet November 6 at Harrisburg's Midtown Scholar Bookstore. The Almost Uptown Poetry Cartel hosts this community reading series, held every Thursday from 7:00 to 9:00 pm
Dan Vera's a writer, editor and author of Speaking Wiri Wiri (Red Hen Press). He's the inaugural winner of the Letras Latinas/Red Hen Poetry Prize, and The Space Between Our Danger and Delight (Beothuk Books). His poetry has appeared in various journals and anthologies.

“To read Dan Vera is to believe the world is actually a good place after all – a place where the reputation of poetry is redeemed with humor and kindness. In the deepest part of the heart where we truly reside, there is always a wish that poetry will rinse off artifice. This is it.” --Grace Cavalieri
