3 POETS FOR A CAUSE A SUCCESS

3 Poets for a Cause was a success. The event highlighted Poets Bruce Arlen Wasserman, Jack Martin and William Stanford as well as Denver soloist Bev Barber, to a wonderfully interactive audience at the Mandolin Café in Loveland, Colorado on Saturday, August 27th.

Promoted to raise funds for the Angel House homeless shelter of Loveland, 3 Poets for a Cause brought the public face to face with Angel House’s work while yielding much needed financial support for the organization.

The event also marked the first book signing of Bruce Arlen Wasserman’s just released collection of poetry, An Undiscovered Country (Horace Simerman Literary Press, 2011). A number of the poems from the book were read at the show for the first time before an audience. The book has been very well received and is being sold worldwide through retailers such as Barnes and Noble.com and Amazon.com, independent booksellers and to the book trade.
