Poetry events on tap
Voices of Poetry, which serves the New Milford area, has announced upcoming events.
The group will play host to "Comfort & Joy II," an evening of readings by accomplished poets, Dec. 14 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Local poets are invited to read their work -- either one non-epic length poem, two haikus or three limericks, with sign-up to begin at 5:45 p.m.
An afternoon of poetry and music, "Voices of Poetry/In a Minor Key II," will be held Jan. 12 from 2 to 4 p.m. in Roxbury.
Music performed by acclaimed multi-reed player Joseph Meo will be featured.
An afternoon of poetry and music, "Voices of Poetry/Under the Gunn II," will be held Feb. 22 from 1 to 2:45 p.m. at Gunn Memorial Library in Washington.
The event at the Wykeham Road library will feature poetry -- and some prose -- read by a panel of distinguished poets and writers, including Cheryl Della Pelle, Katherine Koch, Dimitri Rimsky and Mark Statman.
