You're Invited: Area Poets Laureate Celebrate Christmas Peace with an Online Reading

 Please join us for this delightful event.  
Here is the Zoom link.

This event is the result of Goshen, Connecticut, poet Jim Kelleher's efforts.  He writes:

“Libraries support literacy, and literacy is the foundation of democracy.” That is the first paragraph on the Oliver Wolcott Library’s website for the virtual Christmas Peace Reading on December 15. 

"It features 12 local poets, including Rennie McQuilkin, CT Poet Laureate Emeritus. You can read the entire description, which lists all the readers, by going to OWL’s web site and scrolling down under Adult Events.

"The real reason for this Peace Reading is back in that first sentence/paragraph. There was an election and all we want for Christmas now is help and hope. You can write your own Santa letter for that. But we poets are doing what we can do to work together and use our skills to promote language, and literacy, and democracy. At Christmas.
