If you're looking for something to do in Connecticut this Thursday, I'd like to invite you join me and about a dozen other poets who will be reading at the Westport Arts Center from 7pm-8:30pm. The event is titled "Poetic Inspiration - Readings and Reflections," and includes such local luminaries as Laurel S. Peterson, the Poet Laureate of Norwalk, and Charles Rafferty, an award-winning poet whose work has appeared in a zillion prestigious journals, including The New Yorker, O, The Oprah Magazine, Ploughshares and Prairie Schooner.
The theme of the reading is to include poets "whose work responds to our times and the challenges we face." The event is open to all ages, and will also feature several younger poets from the community.
So stop by the Center, located at 51 Riverside Avenue in Westport, say hi, and enjoy some great poetry and art!
