Deep in the bowels of the Flying Bear Book Store lurks a budding poet – one who keeps his own secrets. Like the fact that he published his very first poetry book. The Bear knew he wrote poetry, but a book?! Justin was completely hush hush about this until late January when it was already published. It will be available February 24th on Amazon. So of course he is the March 2020 Featured Poet at Poetry Night.
Famous poets, budding poets, poetry students, poetry aficionados, and curious listeners as well as supportive family and friends gather at Flying Bear Books in Newaygo on the first Wednesday of every month at 7 PM for Poetry Night to share their work, share what they like and share what inspires them. It’s all free and everyone is welcome. They will be passing a hat to help the bookstore pay the rent, but that’s entirely voluntary. This month it’s all happening on Wednesday, March 4th.
Justin McGarry is an Actor, Poet, and teller of irreverent stories. He was raised in Newaygo, Michigan, and currently attends Grand Valley State University pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing. "A Glimpse of Purple", released in February 2020, is his first collection of writing. He will have copies of his book available for purchase and signing at Poetry Night and the bookstore will be carrying his book in the future.
