Poetry on Brick Street will present Reservoir Dogwoods as featured poets at 6:30 pm Thursday March 3rd, 2011 in the cellar room at G. Simone’s Café (112C South Main Street in downtown Zionsville, Indiana).
THE RESERVOIR DOGWOODS are a poetry/spoken-word quartet of Hoosier writers who first toured together in spring 2009, bringing their unique style of poetry and live performance to both traditional and out-of-the-way venues all over Indiana.
Judy Spector, Professor of English at IUPU Columbus, said: “The Reservoir Dogwoods ... were able to do in one evening what it takes most of the faculty ten weeks to do."
With a saucy blend of humor, drama, street smarts, literary acumen, homespun wisdom, worldly events, personal catharsis, and bawdy pokes at the human condition, the Dogwoods bring enthusiasm and poignancy to every performance. Each has an individual style and is well established in his own right. Together they are an unstoppable juggernaut of poetry.
