Notes from my inbox

Poetry events have been dominating my email recently:
  • The St. Johnsbury Athenaeum's upcoming Readings in the Gallery series will feature Donald Hall: July 1, South Congregational Church
    Garret Keizer and Rigoberto Gonzalez: July 15, South Congregational Church
    Marge Piercy: September 9, St. Johnsbury School
    All programs are at 7:00 PM
  • The Hyla Brook Reading Series continues at the Robert Frost Farm, 122 Rockingham Rd (Rt 28), with a reading by seacoast poet Pat Parnell on Thursday, July 9, 2009, 6:30-8:30pm. Also reading is Hyla Brook poet Midge Goldberg. An Open Mic will follow the readings and all audience members are invited to share their work. The Hyla Brook Poets, the group which organizes the readings, meet for monthly workshops on the third Saturday of the month at 10am. The next meeting will be Saturday, July 18. Please bring 15 copies of a poem for critique. The workshops and reading series will be held at the Frost Farm through September and then return to the Coffee Factory. For questions, please contact Robert Crawford .

  • From Tom Diegoli: "The Conway Public Library and Host Tom Diegoli are pleased to continue our monthly Open Mic series featuring Poetry, Acoustic Music, and Storytelling to be held on the 2nd Monday of every month, from 6:30-8:30PM, downstairs at the Library. Everyone is welcome to come and share, or just to listen. Light refreshments will be served. On Monday, July 13th we will slide into summer with an ALL OPEN MIC evening. Bring your instruments, songs, stories, poems, and especially your friends. We have traditionally had a very big turnout in July, so come and be a part of it. New faces are always welcome: we want to hear what you’ve got. The Rules for the Open Mic are: Max 5 minutes per performer. There will be a Sign-Up Sheet for all who would like to participate. Performers may be allowed more time but they must arrange it with Tom beforehand, time permitting. For more information, directions, etc., you can email Tom at thomasjdiegoli@earthlink.net (and please be sure to put “Open Mic” in the subject line to get past the spam filter) or you can call the Library at 447-5552."
