Bits and Pieces

Last night's reading for the Newton Free Library Poetry Series was terrific! Wish I had a good picture to share. Poets Philiph Burnham Jr. and Ruby Poltorak also read their wonderful poems. For a rainy Tuesday night, we had a very nice crowd--I even sold a few books, which doesn't always happen these days. Special thanks to Doug Holder for organizing the event.


I should be writing poems #9 and #10 but I decided to catch up on a few blogs instead. I may take a page out of Carolee's book and write a list poem ... or two!


This weekend, Doug Holder is reading and co-organizing the annual Somerville News Writers Festival, Doug and Tim Gager always do a nice job putting this event together.
