Bill Berry reads his work at "Word", Theater Mack, Auburn, NY

While somewhat of a recluse in the world of publications and public readings, berry is thrilled that he will be represented in the anthology with three recent poems. He states, “The inclusion of ‘Gestures,’ ‘Tap Tap Tap,’ and ‘A soldier’ reflect my current mindset and signifies my ongoing exploration of themes associated with perseverance, dedication, conviction, celebration, and understanding.” 

Berry has previous publications, and has read at several venues including The Seward House Museum, a national landmark in Auburn, NY; Bill’s Place, a speakeasy/jazz club located in Harlem, NY; Cayuga Museum of History & Art’s Theatre Mack, and presented at “Words On the Verge,” a monthly reading series convened in Brockport, NY.   

We will announce when the anthology is available to the public.
