7:00 pm - Reading works from a new release by Booksmyth Press entitled, To a Careless Sailor, Cyn J Horton cites black & white television, cowboys and spies as her early influences, spicing her work with a film noir flavor. Trained as a child in the graphic arts, she began journaling on the advice of her oil painting instructor. Poetry became a natural outlet. Born in Natick, MA, Cyn attended Beloit College and received a degree in Theatre Arts. In her quest for notoriety, she moved to NYC and broke into the union at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as the first woman ''art handler." After an eight year stint in San Francisco, she returned to New England craving the change of seasons. At this reading she will reveal why she no longer plays softball.
