The Cayuga Museum, in partnership with Olive Trees and aaduna, is starting a new season of a program dedicated to writers and writing. Word, revisited is a bimonthly, community program exploring original writing in all its diverse, intriguing, provocative, and exciting forms.
Word, revisited will begin on March 8 with Auburn’s Donny Alger. Alger first became interested in poetry in 3rd grade, when Mrs. Novitsky shared poems with him, taught him how to rhyme, and encouraged his writing. In his teens, when he began playing in bands, Donny started writing song lyrics. Throughout his life, he’s filled notebooks with poems, lyrics, snippets and more.
Now there is a surplus of written material, produced throughout the decades of his life, but which are timeless to Donny. Donny has been part of word, revisited since its inception, and is excited about this format for presenting his work. He is honored to kick off the 2018 season of word, revisited on March 8.
Word, revisited will take place on the second and fourth Thursday of each month in the intimate space of the Carriage House Theater behind the Cayuga Museum. Each evening’s program will include both a featured speaker and an open mic session. Doors will open at 5:30 pm for open mic sign-up; the featured speaker will begin at 6:00. Admission is $3 per person, cash bar is available.
