Literary Cafè at CFI featuring Ruth Robson and Ed Taylor

On April 5, 2023, at 7:30, the Literary Café at CFI will feature Ruth Robson and Ed Taylor reading from their work at the Center for Inquiry Library, 1310 Sweet Home Rd. (off Maple Rd.) in Amherst, NY.
Ruth Robson earned her BA in English from UB and her master’s in English Education from Buffalo State. She is retired after 30 years of teaching for the Buffalo Public Schools. She was a Fellow of the WNY Writing Program and a member of the Poets’ Workshop at Karen Lewis’s Blue Plate Studio. In recent years she’s been active in the local open reading scene, delighting audiences with her poems. She says she “tends to write about the common moments of an ordinary life.” Some say she makes the “ordinary” extraordinary by the use of her imagination, witty observations, and lyrical language.
Ed Taylor is the author of the novels Theo (Old Street Publishing, 2015) and Sebastian’s Ladder (forthcoming). His poetry appears in Triple 22 from Ravenna Press (2022), a series which showcases three writers per volume,  as well as his poetry collection Idiogest, and 3 poetry chapbooks. His poetry and prose have been published in a variety of U.S. and U.K. periodicals and anthologies Some say she makes the ordinary extraordinary, such Bennington Review, Fiction International, Notre Dame Review, Southwest Review, New World Writing, St Petersburg Review, Southern Poetry Review, North American Review, and his most recent multimedia performance work was the 2020 1-act play “Black Nikes” (Alleyway Theater, Buffalo NY). He teaches at Buff State, Canisius, and UB, and was the director of Just Buffalo Literary Center years ago, before he started teaching.
