Patricia Roth Schwartz and Steve Tills Reading (6-16-11)

On Thursday, June 16 at 7:00 p.m., Patricia Roth Schwartz and Steve Tills will read at Fatzinger Hall of the Waterloo Library, located at 31 East Williams Street, Waterloo, NY 13165.

The reading will be followed by an open mic. This event is funded by Poets & Writers, Inc., and sponsored by The Literary Guild of the Finger Lakes. Admission is free.

Steve Tills lives in Palmyra, New York, with his wife Sandra and their golden retriever Maxwell Sixberry. He plays golf regularly (albeit, in western New York, “seasonally”). He plays particularly at Winged Pheasant Golf Course, five miles from his home, frequently with his father, his brother, his nephew, his brother-in-law, and others he’s known since he first swung a club there when he was eleven, forty years ago.

Rugh Stuff (theenk Books, 2009)  is Steve’s first book of poetry written in a foreign language, the jargon of golf. It is, as others have often said about Esalen founder Michael Murphy’s Golf in the Kingdom, “about neither Golf nor Metaphysics, really.” It doesn’t aspire to be “about Poetry,” either, regardless that that is a subject matter much foregrounded and most fashionable in many avant po books and a lot of Steve’s own most tedious poming over the years.

Patricia Roth SchwartzPatricia Roth Schwartz‘s volume of poetry, Hungers, was published in 1979 by The Blue Spruce Press.

Her volume of short fiction, The Names of the Moons of Mars, was published in 1989 by New Victoria Publishers and won a Lambda Literary Award.

Pat served as both a contributor and co-editor of Knocking on the Silence: Poems Inspired by the Finger Lakes (FootHills 2005).

Her own full-length collection, Planting Bulbs in a Time of War, and Other Poems was published in 2005, and her chapbook, Down the Middle with a Nickel: A Memoir of a West Virginia Childhood in 2007, both also by FootHills.
