Live Poetry At The Book House

In May 2017, S.U.M, LLC performed a live, in-store, simultaneous broadcast, of the Season 2 Finale of “Books, Jazz, Coffee & Smoke,”and an open-mic poetry session on BlogTalkRadio from The Book House.

The Book House is an independent bookstore owned by Michelle Barron and Dave Simmons, located in Maplewood, MO in St. Louis County.  The Book House is also one of several proud sponsors of Some’n Unique Magazine, LLC, and has hosted book signings for S.U.M writers, including Owner, F. Kenneth Taylor in recent years.

During the broadcast, F. Kenneth Taylor made sure to pull Dave & Michelle away from their never-ending duties of owning, operating, and managing The Book House, just long enough for a quick interview with the duo.

Featured Poets;

  • Susan “Spit-Fire” Lively

  • Maria Balogh
  • Curtis Smith
  • Poetess Cynthia Sherrell (S.U.M Writer)
  • Mary G. Fortier
