Daniel Thompson Event

Drumplay to Remember Daniel Thompson on April 19 at 6 p.m.

On the eve of what would have been Daniel's 78th birthday, poets and percussionists will gather to celebrate the "Famous in the Neighborhood" poet.  Maj Ragain, Bill Kennedy, Ray McNiece, Larry Smith, James Onysko, and Ernie Krivda will gather to perform some of his poetry with a number of musicians at the Lakewood Public Library front porch.  Thompson toured with Drumplay belting out his poetry while the percussionists and saxophone players performed.  All sales of materials go to the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless. Thompson was a frequent contributor to the Homeless Grapevine newspaper while he was alive.  For more information go to the Lakewood Library website at www.lakewoodpubliclibrary.org/poetry.
