Join me on Saturday, April 29 between 2 and 4 p.m. for "Words from the Wild," an afternoon of nature poetry and music at the Welles Turner Memorial Library in Glastonbury, Connecticut. I will take you on a journey along the New England Trail with a series of haibun, a form that combines prose and haiku. We will hike in words along the edge of rugged cliffs, in deep forest, along the edges of cloud reflecting lakes and more. We will also be celebrating the wonderful work of the late Hugh Ogden a great poet and teacher whose poems of the outdoors will be read by family and friends. There will be music by "Wait for It," an a capella gospel-folk jazz quartet. Refreshments will be served. Celebrate spring, national poetry month and discover new ways to see the great outdoors! Don't miss this afternoon of good words and music, fine company and conversation.
"Words from the Wild" is a presentation of the Glastonbury Land Heritage Coalition and Glastonbury Poet Laureate Alexandrina Sergio. Books will be available for signing and purchase. The Welles-Turner Memorial Library is a handsome building that combines the best of old fashioned library atmosphere with modern services. The library is at 2407 Main Street, Glastonbury, CT.
