Marilyn Hacker
The Arts Cafe is proud to present Marilyn Hacker who for 40 years has been one of the most powerful voices in American poetry and the feminist movement.  Hacker has been called a “radical formalist” for infusing colloquial speech and contemporary issues into classical forms like the sonnet, sestina, villanelle, and the dazzling variety of verse forms she has coined.  She has used poetry as the medium to speak eloquently and fiercely as a feminist, lesbian, mother, cancer survivor, Jew, and international citizen (who lives in Paris and New York).  Her work has earned many honors including the National Book Award, Lamont Poetry Prize, PEN Voelcker Prize and International Poetry Prize.

The Sea The Sea
The Sea The Sea is the singer-songwriter folk duo that Huffington Post describes as “two of the loveliest male-female voices you might ever hear. . .”  Chuck e. Costa and Mira Stanley are the young talents who make up The Sea The Sea, a name which they borrowed from Xenophon’s Anabasis, the ancient tale of Greek soldiers returning to their coast home after a long arduous battle inland. “The sea!  The sea!” is their cry of joy. The duo returns to The Arts Café in the midst of a tour of their new album, In the Altogether.  Not to be missed.
