Drive-By Poets reading at the Forbes Library in Northampton set for Wed. Oct. 1st at 7PM
Wed. Oct. 1st at 7PM, at the Forbes Library in Northampton, I've been asked to curate a poetry reading of five local poets upstairs in the glassed-in room now called the Coolidge Museum next to the Hosmer Gallery. The reading is under the auspices of my 4 year old public poetry postering project Drive-By Poets. This is the first of six Wednesdays of poetry readings at the library, each curated by a different person. So far I've confirmed Alyssa Lovell, who in fact guides the monthly Monday poetry discussion group at the library, Allegra Mira who writes the Valley Poetry blog on MassLive, and myself, Jim Neill, who writes about 5 poems every year. Just to get you in the mood, here's a poem by Alyssa Lovell which you can also see out on the streets starting this weekend. The poem, not Alyssa. CLICK THE POEM to see it more easily.
