Reception & Poet Readings

Saturday, November 2, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
This past August through October, the Library hosted four exhibits pairing original poetry with artwork. Nancy R. Davison’s exhibit (August 1 – 23) featured her own paintings and linocuts together with the poems they inspired. Janie J. Gendron (August 24 – September 13) explored the fact that we all live close to many edges: in love, nature, death, and the in-between. Melanie Kyer (September 14 – October 4) showcased poems inspired by her children’s art. Priscilla Cookson’s exhibit, “Smuggler,” (October 7 – 31) showed stories in poetry of humans and goods smuggled through traditional trade routes in the Sahel and the Sahara with photographs by Chris Decato. The four poets will host a reception and read from their work on Saturday, November 2 at 6:30 PM.
