Roselle Park’s SummerFest Summer Arts Café Returns

ROSELLE PARK – Performing on Thursday, Aug. 29, at 6:30 p.m. will be guitarist Paul Desilva and reading her poetry, Roselle Park’s Poet Laureate, Leona M Seufert. The Veterans Memorial Library is located at 404 Chestnut Street, Roselle Park. Coffee and cookies will be available at the free event.

Desilva, a Roselle Park resident, has been playing guitar since the age of eight and also likes to sing. He plays instrumentals that sound classical or Spanish but he is versed in many other styles. For about 10 years, he played guitar in church. “I’m basically a singer songwriter/guitarist who is on a musical quest and not trying to limit myself.”

Seufert is active in the arts in this town. She is the town’s first Poet Laureate. She has read her poems at the annual 9/11 memorial service, and has given writing workshops and readings at the Roselle Park Library and Casano Community Center. Seufert has published two poetry chapbooks, The Memory Keeper’s Promise – Reflecting on Loss and Remembrance which included the poems that she read at each of the Roselle Park 9/11 memorial services, From Here To There And Back Again, A Commuter’s Journey, which is a collection of poems she wrote about her daily commute into New York City over a 12 month period.
