I’m involved in not one, not two, but THREE poetry events this weekend. Hope you can join me for one or all of them.
Rhina P. Espaillat, Fred Marchant, and Afaa Michael Weaver
March 23, 7 p.m.
The House of the Seven Gables, 115 Derby Street, Salem
These three great poets will read their own work in support of Mass Poetry. Suggested donation is $35 per person or $60 for two. Donations accepted online (go to Mass Poetry's website and click on Donate) or at the door.
Free Poetry Workshop
Saturday, March 24 at 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
Sponsored by Peabody Historical Society
Let your writing be inspired by authentic Colonial-era tools, documents and lives at historic Brooksby Farm. Then, create handmade books of your poetry with book artist Sarah Smith at Montserrat College of Art on April 1. Open to all levels of writing/art experience.
