Voices of Poetry, which serves Greater New Milford, will play host to "Comfort & Joy II," an evening of readings by accomplished poets, Dec. 14 from 6 to 8 p.m.

The event at Bank Street Coffee House will feature readings by Melissa Croghan, Susie Hackel, Dimitri Rimsky and Rocco Russo.

In addition, singer Carol Leven will perform music accompanied by guitarist and singer Jim Palermo.

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.
