Stone Soup Servings Presents: Mark Hänser


 

Stone Soup Servings is a regular series for Oddball Magazine that features upcoming performers at Stone Soup Poetry, the long-running spoken word venue in the Boston area that has partnered with Oddball Magazine. Stone Soup Poetry now meets from 7-9 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery at 541 Massachusetts Avenue in Central Square Cambridge, Massachusetts. The open mike sign-up at 6:30 p.m.

On Monday, May 16, we have Lee Litif and Mark Hänser returning to Stone Soup. Lee Litif needs to be both seen and heard to be believed, but we have Mark Hänser on deck to read. We hope to see you in the gallery this Monday.
