Flash Fiction Open Mic Featuring Freddie Owens
Hosted by SETH
Featuring Freddie Owens! Freddie Owens grew up around Detroit although he was born in Kentucky and visited quite frequently, providing some of the best and worst times of his growing up years. A professional counselor and psychotherapist who for many years counseled perpetrators of domestic violence and sex offenders, Owens uses both his professional experience and childhood memories as inspiration for his novel Then Like The Blind Man: Orbie’s Story. Set in 1950 rural Appalachia, Owens’ novel is a psychologically astute, skillful and engrossing novel rendered from a child’s viewpoint.
With Host SETH! Fiction writer, poet, musician and actor SETH is best known for performing poetry and fiction to live music. Every Sunday night, he hosts the “Jam before the Slam” at the Mercury Café from 7-8pm with his musical-poetic ensemble Art Compost & the Word Mechanics. A performance poet for more than 20 years, SETH says he is on a never-ending mission to perpetually devise provocative ways to present spoken word. Expect to be surprised.
