Ink runs from the corners of my mouth.
There is no happiness like mine.
I have been eating poetry.
Mark Strand, “Eating Poetry,” Reasons for Moving, 1968

Happy April! April is National Poetry Month, and to celebrate, the Montclair Library is hosting a poetry reading and open mic event April 16th.

From 6-7pm, six local poets will read their poetry. Linda Brown of the California Writers Club will MC.

Alysa Chadow
Naomi Ruth Lowinsky
Leah Shelleda
Paula Gocker
Bernard Gershenson
Grace Marie Grafton

There will be an open mic from 7-7:30pm. No advance sign-up necessary. Come read your work!

P.S. – At the program, come sit on the new chairs the Friends of Montclair Library funded for the library with money you helped us raise through book sales and donations. Yay!
