The poets Aliesa Zoecklein, Feral Wilcox, Corky Culver, and Samara Golabuk (collectively known as The Scribe Tribe) are some of the natural treasures of Gainesville which makes them a perfect fit for the Florida Museum of Natural History. On Sunday, October 2nd at 1:30pm, they'll weave spoken and sung poetry with instrumental music in celebration of Wild Music: Sounds and Song Life, an exhibit at the museum.
Aliesa's poems have been accepted into the journals Cream City Review, Cimarron Review, and Pleiades, where's there's a link to one of her poems available. Corky's collection The Natural Law of Water has a prominent place on my bookshelf, and in addition to her lyrical poetry, I've heard that Samara has quite the singing voice. Top this all off with Feral's genius as a wordsmith and musician and we're pretty much guaranteed one of those transportive, can't-hardly-believe-we-got-to-be-there afternoons.
So, Sunday, October 2nd, 1:30pm, at the Florida Museum of Natural History. The admission is free. I'm so looking forward to this.
