Poetry Night With Featured Reader Peter Neil Carroll
Beginning this month, we will have the opportunity to hear published poets read aloud from their work. Afterwards, we’ll have a Q&A with the poets, and you can talk with them about their craft. One of the best ways to connect with poetry is to hear it read aloud. For January we welcome Belmont poet and scholar Peter Neil Carroll, author of over 20 books. Come join us!
Hosted by Belmont Poet Laureate Tanu Wakefield.
Location: Belmont Library
