Tom Wayne has been co-owner of Prospero's Books for 12 years. He studied various subjects at the University of Kansas from 1977 to 1981. Things that occupied him in the 80s and 90s: commercial real estate broker/investor, carpenter, cook, waiter, and mechanic. Wayne's first book, Harsh Glare Carnival, was released in 2009 (Unholy Day Press). He scribbles madly when time and materials and muse allow. Joseph Davis is a poet, Kansas City resident and a part of the Prospero’s Bookstore reading scene. Joseph has been writing steadily since he was a sophomore in high school, where he published his first poem. A lover of songwriting and music, he has been influenced by the craftsmanship of Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Bruce Cockburn (COE-burn). He has settled on writing poetry as his primary form of creative expression because it is cheaper than a set of electric bass strings, an instrument he has enjoyed learning for the past seven years. Currently employed at a certain Jimmy John's in midtown, he strives to keep from living a life of quiet desperation by speaking directly as possible to the human condition in his poetry. On July 31, he will hold forth on the topic "Unitarian Universalist Principles as an Antidote to Magical Thinking and the Triumph of Spectacle" at All Souls Church for the Sunday service there... tie dye IS encouraged! This event features music by Gib Shell. (caracabe)
