FANWOOD, NJ – The Carriage House Poetry Series invites the public to attend a free evening of poetry readings on Tuesday, September 19th beginning at 8:00 p.m. in the Patricia Kuran Arts Center on Watson Road, off North Martine Avenue, adjacent to Fanwood Borough Hall (GPS use 75 N. Martine Avenue). The evening’s readings will feature two wonderful New Jersey poets, Karen Lee Ramos and her son, Daniel Ramos.
Karen Lee Ramos and her family live in the highlands of northern New Jersey. She is active in the Sussex County Writers’ Roundtable in Newton. Her poems have appeared in The Paterson Literary Review, The Stillwater Review, Exit 13 Magazine, and the second volume of the anthology “Voices From Here.”
Daniel Ramos is the 10-year-old son of Karen Lee Ramos. He is homeschooled and has been writing and reading at open mic sessions with his mother since the age of eight. Daniel’s poems have appeared in The Stillwater Review and the anthology “Voice From Here.” He is the youngest poet to be featured in the Carriage House series.
The Carriage House Poetry Series was launched in 1998 and is now in its nineteenth year at the Kuran Arts Center, an historic Gothic Revival structure that was once a 19th century carriage house, hence the name of the series. The Sept. 19 reading is free and open to the public. An open mic will follow the featured performances.
