Two local writers team up for an afternoon of pint-sized stories and pithy poems complete with pocket trumpet and tenor sax. Daniel Gewertz (memoir writer, novelist and story-teller) and Dick Lourie (poet and blues/jazz musician) merge forces for an hour of brief tales and bursts of brass and reeds. Gewertz’s funny and poignant life stories center on micro moments with surprisingly large repercussions. Lourie’s creative instincts were born in the NYC poetry scene of the ‘60s, and were then drenched in the blues of mid-20th century America.
