He is the author and/or editor of fifteen poetry collections, the latest of which is Meditations in Congo Square. He is the winner of an American Book Award and a Pew Fellowship in the Arts. Steptoe is a father, Vietnam veteran, and founder of Whirlwind Press.

I received an email from Bob Small:

 “This was inspired by Peter Baroth’s Poem Tuesday Night at a Reading hosted by Poets and Prophets. Could there be a way to arrange a book of Poems by various Poets in tribute to Lamont? “

I thought it was a great idea so here we are. – Larry Robin

Lamont will be 67 on February 9, 2016 and we will celebrate his life, achievements and his inspiration to another generation of poets with a chapbook of poems dedicated to him. Please join us as some of the many poets who love Lamont read their poems for him and we release A Roomful of Truth: A Tribute to Lamont B. Steptoe. This is a potluck event so please bring something good to eat or drink.
