In Their Own Words: A Poetry Reading Thursday, February 2 6:00 pm
Can poetry save this country? We don’t know for sure, but what we do know is people have been looking to poetry for centuries to help discern and question the tumultuous social and political climates throughout human history, sometimes using beauty, sometimes utilizing grace and other times with humor.
We want to invite you to a poetry reading that will indeed rely on grace, humor and beauty to speak to our present day.
February 2nd, 6 pm in the gorgeous Marc Jacobs Reading Room of The Provincetown Public Library, a group of talented poets, including Provincetown Fine Arts Writing Fellows Leila Chati, Hilary Dobel, Phillip Matthews & Sam Ross, will join Slope Editions Book Prize winning poet Keegan Lester for a stop on his national book tour in support of his debut collection of poetry, “this shouldn’t be beautiful but it was & it was all i had so i drew it”.
Admission is free for this event. Signed copies of the collection will be available for $15 preorder and will be shipped in early February. It’s sure to be a wonderful night. Come get cozy with us.
