– The next South Brunswick Arts Commission meeting will be Nov. 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the first-floor lounge of the Municipal Building.
The meetings are held the third Thursdays of the month; the public is welcome.
November events include:
The Poetry Series in cooperation with the South Brunswick Library, featuring Burt Kimmelman, will be held Sunday, Nov. 14, from 2 to 4 p.m.
Dr. Kimmelman has published six collections of poetry – "As If Free" (Talisman House, Publishers, 2009), "There Are Words" (Dos Madres Press, 2007), "Somehow" (Marsh Hawk Press, 2005), "The Pond at Cape May Point" (Marsh Hawk Press, 2002), a collaboration with the painter Fred Caruso, "First Life" (Jensen/Daniels Publishing, 2000) and "Musaics" (Sputyen Duyvil Press, 1992).
A poem from his newest book was featured on NPR’s "The Writer’s Almanac."
For over a decade, he was senior editor of the now defunct "Poetry New York: A Journal of Poetry and Translation." He is a professor of English at New Jersey Institute of Technology and the author of two book-length literary studies: "The Winter Mind. William Bronk and American Letters" (Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 1998); and, "The Poetics of Authorship in the Later Middle Ages: The Emergence of the Modern Literary Persona" (Peter Lang Publishing, 1996; paperback 1999).
He also edited "The Facts on File Companion to 20th-Century American Poetry" (Facts on File, 2005) and co-edited "The Facts on File Companion to American Poetry" (Facts on File, 2007).
He has published scores of essays on medieval, modern and contemporary poetry. A recent interview with Tom Fink has appeared online in Jacket 40.
The program will be followed by open readings by audience members.
The library is at 110 Kingston Lane in Monmouth Junction. There will be free admission, but a food pantry donation would be appreciated.
