Poets & Pints: September 11

 

Poets and Pints LogoJoin Porter Square Books at Aeronaut brewery for a celebration of local poetry. 

The greater Somerville and Cambridge area is lucky to have such a vibrant poetry community. So, we will gather at the community space at Aeronaut on the Duck Village stage, to celebrate that community with readings by three local poets.

 

On September 11, local poet Sara London will read from her new release Upkeep with fellow Four Way Books poets, Vincent Guerra (When Hollywood Comes to You) & Marcia Pelletiere (A Crown of Hornets)
