| 2 Comments

Two unique events at the Raconteur this weekend--come check these out!

8 PM, Fri. Jan 30
Cool Women Reading/Signing

Cool Women Poetry collective includes members who are active as: Poets in the Schools, under the auspices of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, as well as 'Dodge Poets' with the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Foundation.

Noon, Sun. Feb 1
Transatlantic Web Cam Jam Session/Live Music

The first Sunday of each month The Raconteur will host a very special transatlantic jam session, live in Metuchen and concurrent with a running session in Reading, England at a pub called The Retreat. Raconteur musicians will play in the rear of the Rac while Retreat musicians will be projected on a screen behind local performers, riffing off each other via a Google web cam. Expect, among the eclectic mix of instruments, something called a fluba, which appears to be a tuba-sized fluegel horn.

There was a pretty good turnout for the "Cool Women" poets. And they were excellent. I'm really glad I went -- AND I found a book hidden on one of the shelves that I had been searching for for years. It's a great place to come and browse (and, Alex hopes, buy!).

We should all contribute $$ to Alex to keep the bookshop afloat. He says small, independent booksellers like him are having it tough in these hard times. Stop by one of his events, throw a few bucks in the till (actually, it's a hat), or if you can afford it, send him a donation check. He's really working hard to build something special at the Rac and we'll all be poorer if it doesn't work out.
