Gibson’s Bookstore is proud to be taking part in the Capital Arts Fest the last weekend in September.
We are gathering people who are well-known in the community and asking them all to read a favorite poem on Sunday, Sept. 26, starting at 2 PM.
It might be by Robert Frost, it might be by Joy Harjo (the U.S. Poet Laureate), it might be by Alexandria Peary (the NH Poet Laureate); or it might be something they've written themselves; or it might be about that famous guy from Nantucket. Come to listen and to celebrate the art of poetry--and the idea of community--here at the bookstore! Scheduled to appear and read as of this writing are BECKY RULE, BYRON CHAMPLIN, STEVE DUPREY, ANGIE LANE, TOM RAFFIO, LAURA SCOTT, JAYME SIMOES, AL CANTOR, and KATIE COLLINS. Please join us!
(How many of these American poets can you name?)
