Daniel Thompson Event for 2014

Got this message from James regarding an upcoming Daniel Thompson event:  Hard to believe, but Daniel has been gone now for nearly ten years.  On May 6, 2014 @ 7:30 p.m., Ayman at Algebra Tea House has agreed to host Drumplay in a performance to honor Daniel's memory, and to raise funds for the Cleveland Street Chronicle - an empowerment project of the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless

Algebra Tea House was a favorite haunt of Daniel's; and we gather there again for a worthy cause.  The Homeless Grapevine (the previous name of the paper) was also a favorite of Daniels. Daniel often published new pieces of poetry in the paper.   Please let me know ASAP that you will join me in this effort.

I hope you will also spread the word.

Another Opportunity to Hear Daniel's Poetry

The Drumplay folks are doing a second show to remember the poetry of DanDaniel Thompson attended a 2000 rally to celebrate the NEOCH victory over the City of Cleveland at Willard Park by City Hall. iel Thompson.  April is the anniversary of his birth (also national poetry month), and so there is always a great deal of activity.  Of course, poetry in the spring is always the best time of year to be open to the creative uses of the English language. 

We have previously posted the event at the Lakewood Library on April 19 at 6 p.m.  But if you cannot make the Friday event there is a Sunday session at the Shaker Library from 2-4 p.m.  What possibly could be better than an afternoon of Daniel's poetry at the people's university?   The Shaker Library is at 16500 Van Aken Blvd 4/21 at 2 p.m. Featuring Ray McNiece, Ernie Krivda on saxophone and the jazz/folk musicians of Drumplay led by our friend James.   We hope that you can attend one of these events.
