Poetry reading at Loomis Gallery
For an evening full of art and literature, step up to the Loomis Hall Gallery. Poets James Bertolino and Anita K. Boyle will read new poems, old poems, some from books, some not, and they’ll throw in a variety of collaborative poems, too. Plus, Anita will share poems from her brand new published volume, What the Alder Told Me.
For this reading, they might even bring in a few of the great poets’ poems about music. Why music? There’s a jazz art show up in the gallery, which includes about a dozen of Anita’s watercolor/ink/gouache portraits of jazz musicians. When is the last time you were at a poetry reading with John Coltrane looking down at you from his place on the wall-stage? They’ll read for fifteen or twenty minutes each, which will give you a chance to take a look around afterward at the artwork by Anita and six other outstanding visual artists.
