An evening with Charley Springer at The Station Gallery
LOCK HAVEN — The Clinton County Arts Council are delighted to announce a special evening of poetry readings by Charley Springer from his newly released book entitled “Juice” on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. at The Station Gallery.
Charley is a long time resident of the area and an accomplished writer as well as an award winning painter. He will entertain visitors with a selection of readings, discuss his poetry and sign copies of the book at the reception.
Charles (Charley) Springer has degrees in anthropology. A Pushcart Prize nominee, he has published in over 70 journals including The Cincinnati Review, Edison Literary Review, Faultline, Oxford Magazine, Packingtown Review, Passager, Tar River Poetry and the Windsor Review. “Juice” is his first collection of poems.
“Charley’s Juice takes you to a world that is so real it’s fake, so fake it’s real, and so fantastical you can’t figure out if you are coming or going. Deep sadness mingles with slapstick and everyone is getting up and going to work in the underbelly of Heaven. “Juice” is a magical joyride on a spaceship made of dust and stars, cobwebs and takeout boxes, fenders and a little hay that shoots us straight to a carnival of hyperrealism, where the side show is a mirror into our souls. Look in. You may think the mirror is warped, but let me tell you, it’s not. Read Juice and read America in all its rusty, neon, prairied, and salt-stained glory,” said Rebecca Kinzie-Bastian, author of “Charms for Finding.”
The Clinton County Arts Council is committed to offering outstanding art enrichment events to the region. Charley’s poetry is thought provoking and covers a wide range of emotions. Please join us for this unique community event to celebrate the arts and the publication of Juice.
