If you're looking for something to do this weekend that combines a beautiful location, beautiful weather, beautiful art and beautiful words, look no farther than the The Poets, Writers & Storytellers Stage at the Norwalk Art Festival, located at Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum in Mathews Park, 295 West Avenue, Norwalk, Connecticut 06850. This is the second year that the talented (and very organized) poet Jerry T. Johnson has put together this event, and it promises to be a wonderful weekend. For those poets and writers out there who would like to take the stage, there will also be an open mic time.
So stop in, enjoy art and the spoken word, and stay afterwards to say hi to all the writers! Below is the schedule of the very local authors who will be participating (including me - I'll be reading on Saturday). Hope to see you there!
Who the heck is Alison McBain?
I am a freelance writer and poet with nearly a hundred short pieces published in magazines and anthologies. When not writing, I'm the Book Reviews Editor for the magazine Bewildering Stories. If the Walking Dead isn't on, I draw pictures and do origami meditation in Connecticut, where I live with my family. If the Walking Dead is on... shhhh! The Walking Dead is on!
