Joe Tallarigo~The Cincinnati Kid 


Hello! Welcome to my website. 

Please feel free to explore my poems, look at photos, check out where I will be selling my books, and if you like what you see feel free to purchase my book and I will sign it. 

There is a few Spring shows I am doing in 2018, check out my calendar of dates to buy my books and I will sign them in person. 

My name is Joe Tallarigo, I'm 33, and with my two new books that came out on October 7, 2017.  I am returning to my roots with poems about growing up in Price Hill, going to Americana, watching the fireworks at Riverfest, writing about Opening Day, two Cincinnati Reds icons, attending Oak Hills High School, visiting my brother up in Bowling Green, Ohio, and dealing with the deaths of my aunt, uncle, grandma, and mom.  The titles are "Forever in my Heart" and "Life Goes On" 

I have written a total of four poetry books and on October 23, 2017, it will be seventeen years since I wrote my first poem "Stay Around" at Oak Hills. 

For booking and signing events, or want me to talk about poetry to your classes: please contact me at: [email protected]

My childhood house in Price Hill.  This house held many family parties, friends were welcome, and I spent many days on the hill watching the storms move in from the West.  It was tore down in 2014 for the new Boys and Girls Club and dedicated during the Major League All-Star game in July 2015.

 My official book signing at Jim and Jacks in May of 2012.

Thanks for coming to the spring 2016 Oak Hills Craft fair. I will be back on November 19, 2016 to sell my books. Hope to see you there. 

My dream came true when the Country Music Hall of Fame Bookstore in Nashville Tennessee bought copies of my first book 'The First Quarter"~A Songwriters Dream.
