Favorite Poem Event Wrap-up

At The Loom’s First Favorite Poem Event, we came together to hear poems presented by members of the Harrisville community and neighbors. That Sunday afternoon we were treated to a heartening array of voices.  Each participant gave the gift of themselves in their choice of poem and the sincerity of their reading. \The important role of poetry in our lives was on display.

Thank you to all who attended. 

Pencil in our next event, Andrea Cohen & Maggie Dietz on May 19.
