Somewhat appropriately (or ominously), the venue for this year’s MaPoFest is Salem, MA, notorious for its history of dunking any citizens suspected of being…different. What better place for a bunch of poets to gather?
Lots of great readings, workshops and music will be going on, including the Boston Typewriter Orchestra (going to that!)
I’m taking part in two events Saturday, May 4:
New Books Reading
with Aimee Sands, Jennifer Barber, Howard Faerstein, Annie Finch
Amy Dryansky, Steven Cramer & Michael Cantor
Omen (really, that’s the name of the venue!)
184 Essex St.
Our Side of the Pond
a reading by poets publishing with the Irish Press, Salmon Poetry–
with Lori Desrosiers, Amy Dryansky, Mary Pinard, Valerie Duff
Aimee Sands & Mary O’Donoghue
1:30 – 2:30
Hawthorne Hotel Library
Hope to see you there! (No dunking)
