HI,   The next salon, on June 19, will be the poetry of Ben Okri, a Nigerian 
Poet.  Gayle found some sites on the web for his poetry and also some videos.   
She says:

"I've started to look up some poems online by Ben Okri.  Googled: "Ben Okri 
poetry"  or "Ben Okri poems", which brought me to a page that had a few entries 
with actual poems, including Grenell Tower,June,2017.  (It's pretty long: about 
5 pages when I printed it out). 

Right there, also, --, ---were 3 videos of him reading, along with further 
videos in the right hand, plenty of material to choose from there.

One page-entry in particular, which knocked my socks off, had a poem called, 
Friend in Africa.  And I printed out a copy of that to bring along next week.  "

The  salon will still be at the East 7th Mississippi Market, 740 East 7th.    I 
sent out earlier that it would be at the W 7th Market, but it is not.   Things 
had to change.
