Description:

A Busboys and Poets event hosted this week by Orville Walker

Orville the Poet is Orville Walker Jr., one in the same. That’s why I don’t have a pen name or stage name, Orville the Poet is Orville the person. I’m a regular guy who happens to be observant and who was lent the great gift of words. Just trying to inspire those around me one poem at a time.

FEATURING: JUST MIKE THE POET

Michael E. Reid is a Poet, Author, Speaker, and Publisher from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Michael’s story started after a failed relationship and unsuccessful suicide attempt, he found himself in a hospital bed with a heavy heart and blank composition book. What started out as writing therapy for a man, who lost his way, exploded into one of the largest contemporary poetry inspired movements of our time. Mike used his new-found talent as a writer to establish a social media platform dedicated to the inspiration, enlightenment, and encouragement of women. Five years removed from his first poem, Mike has penned four books, Just Words, Just Words 2, Dear Woman, and The Boyfriend Book respectively. As of Summer, 2017, Michael’s digital and print sales have ballooned to 250,000 copies sold. To date Mike has reached over 200,000 women across three social platforms “Just Mike the Poet”.
