Description: We will be having a tribute event for the poet and artist, Roby Springer who passed away February 22, 2014. There will be snacks and beverages, and the event will consist of performances of his poetry and words, music, and songs. We will also be showing film and images on the big screen. It will be open to the public, and free admission. So please save the date. We encourage anyone and everyone to attend. Even if you never met Roby, please come and learn about all the wonderful art, words, and teachings he left behind for us all, bringing people together in the name of poetry and creativity. Among the sharers, readers, and performers, will be Eric Hoegemeyer, Jesse Smith, JJ Hayes, David Garland, Morana Mesic, local poets and musicians, and more! To learn more about Roby's life, his poetry and writings, his art, and his great work as a substance abuse group facilitator, please visit this website created by his wife, Camey: www.soitis.org For address and more information about the theater: http://anthologyfilmarchives.org/ This space was suggested to us for this event by our friends Mariana Luna and Anne Waldman, in the spirit of it being a meeting place and home for poets for many decades. It really seems to be a place that captures the spirit of what Roby believed in. We hope to see you there. :) Roby Springer was born in Queens, New York in 1948. A poet and musician as well as an artist, he worked and lived throughout country from California to Texas to eventually landing in Detroit for 15 years. Clean and sober for 26 years at the time of his death, he used his experience, strength and hope to help and guide thousands of people to a better life. Freeing “prisoners” (whether physically incarcerated or spiritually) became his life’s mission and to that end there are countless numbers of repaired homes and lives. His influence reached across social, economic, and personality lines to positively touch the hearts everyone he met.
