Saturn Series Poetry Reading & Open Mike

March 2, 2015... AT
Shades of Green Pub & Restaurant
8pm NYC

Featuring: LinDel Sandlin and April Jones

About LinDel Sandlin...
LinDel Sandlin, a recovering Southern Baptist, writes poems on topics ranging from Butterfly Love to Crocodile Woman to Hot Tub Jesus to Huascar, Gatekeeper of the Underworld. She mixes her poetic metaphors like any respectable 2nd place winner of the Georgia Junior Peanut Recipe Contest should. She declines to say what year that was and thinks you're being "fresh" for asking! LinDel comes from a theater background, where she has been an actor, singer, director, and props mistress. She even co-wrote a musical spoof of The Wizard of Oz (but who hasn't). She is also a novice ukulele player and drummer and occasionally peppers her poetry with her own sound effects. After moving to NYC in the early '90s, her poetic muse broke loose and before long, LinDel found herself furtively performing her poems at the infamous Surf Reality on the Lower East Side - back in the days when people there could be shot for much less provocation than promulgating pain-seared poetry. After an extended hiatus, LinDel recently came back to performing her poetry and in the past couple years has been featured at Bernard Block's "From Whitman to Ginsberg" series at Cornelia Street Café, Phillip Giambri's " Rimes of the Ancient Mariner" and is truly pleased to be featured once more at the Saturn Series.

The Bronx’s Tales which was a Play I contributed my writings and also performed, the show was performed at Riverside Church and Holy Sacrament, In 2012 I obtained my Producer Certification from Lehman College produced and directed "Your Call to Be Heard" in Bronx, NY.
