Listen to Local Poets and Read Your Own Poem at Third Thursday Words

Thursday, August 21 ... THIRD THURSDAY WORDS at Camalli Book Store, at 7:00! We'll have in a fantastic group of talented local poets: Pete Lovering, John Martin, Judy Montgomery and Ellen Waterston. They will read nothing but short poems (their own and others')--from haiku to limerick to sonnet. Peter is celebrating the publication of a new hand-produced book of haiku, INNERVOICE/OPEN SPACE. John, inspired by a month-long poetry residency at Caldera, will read new work and poems from his chapbook, NICK OF TIME. Ellen will read from her prize-winning chapbook, I AM MADAGASCAR, and give us a taste of work from her soon-to-be-published new book of poems. And Judy, just returned from a poetry getaway, will read some of her new poems and work from her recent chapbook, PULSE & CONSTELLATION. Join us-and if you'd like, bring a short poem (yours or one of your favorites) to read aloud!
