On Thursday, December 3rd from 6-8pm the Monrovia Writers Group will host poet Jason Ammerman in the community room of the Monrovia branch of the Morgan County Public Library located at: 145 S. Chestnut Street Monrovia, Indiana 46157.  Our speaker will discuss poetry and do a reading. The event is free and open to the public. Everyone in attendance will be eligible for door prizes.

About Our Speaker:

Jason L. Ammerman has been a practicing and professional poet for just over two and a half decades.  He has spent many years in the coffeehouse movement of the early nineties.  His first brush with professional poets came at the, now defunct, CafĂ© Angst in Indianapolis where he was asked to fill a spot at the Indianapolis stop of the Lollapalooza concert festival in 1994 at their spoken word stage.  He has hosted and organized many poetry readings and poetry slams since then.  Jason has three collections of poetry published.  He is expecting to publish his fourth collection of poetry, Waylon Jennings Never Slept Here, in 2016.  In 2008, Jason joined fellow poets Matthew Jackson (Columbus, Indiana), Joseph Kerschbaum and Tony Brewer (both from Bloomington, Indiana respectively) as founding members of the touring poetry troupe, The Reservoir Dogwoods.  Jason lives with his beautiful wife, Shanna, his handsome son, Jude and his loyal canine companion, Teddy, in the historic neighborhood of Irvington in Indianapolis, Indiana.  He is 42 years old.
