John R. Garry is a North County poet who has published two books of poems, " “Lean In: Live from Everywhere," and “Regalos de la Isla: Gifts from the island." An open mic will follow -- so bring something to share if you feel like it! P. S. We will be UPSTAIRS. BIO: John R. Garry is a gifted spoken word artist and fledgling student of the world. He started his life journey in Connecticut and has made his way across 9 countries by train, plane, automobile and even by foot. His poetry is informed by his travel and his work as a licensed clinical psychologist in the community, with our military and in our prison system. On a microphone he shares his unique worldview with authenticity and humility. His first published work in 2009, “Regalos de la Isla: Gifts from the island”, came as a poetic response to travel through Cuba. The book is wrapped in music and the people of the island. In 2015 he released “Lean In: Live from Everywhere”. There John shows a willingness to be participant and observer in his life and work. This pieces were forged through his work in prison and his life after the loss of his mother. His performances are a melodic blend of emotion and deep reflection that will make you think, feel, and be inspired.
