"This month, the Second Thursday Poetry-Plus evening will feature two very dynamic poets, from dissimilar backgrounds and using different poetic voices, who nevertheless share a deep belief in the basic triumph of the best in human nature. David Madgalene's epic poetry, accompanied by bassist Steve Shain, echoes jazz and gospel musicality. His most recent epic poem, "Call Down the Angel," was made into a gospel-based musical this year. Sashana Proctor's poetry, recounting human struggles and joys, emerges, like her collages, from an ecology-based spirituality. Recently, she has turned her attention to writing about getting older, which she muses, "beats the alternative." Another poetry-plus evening not to be missed."
