PPL’s Monthly Book Discussion–Poetry Edition!

April 9, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This month we were supposed to read Wes McNair's "My Brother Running", but since we needed to close the library before the books arrived, then I encourage you to find a poem or poet or book of poetry and we'll talk about all of those. Or check out some of Wes' work here: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/wesley-mcnair If you'd like to "attend" our Zoom poetry discussion, please email me at hollywil@pittsfield.lib.me.us to get the link. Happy reading!
