Come hear Juliana and Karen in November

For their November Second Thursday Poetry Series the Guilford Poets Guild will present two longtime Guild members, Juliana Harris and Karen Gronback Johnson, Thursday, November 10, 7:00 p.m. at the Greene Art Gallery, 29 Whitfield in Guilford. The reading will be preceded by an open mic from 7 to 7:30 p.m. Juliana Harris won her first award for poetry when she was 14 and has been writing ever since.  A member of the Guilford Poets Guild, her work has appeared in The Mid-America Poetry Review, The Kansas City Star, The New York Times, Best Times and Chicken Soup for the Soul among others.  She published her first novel, The Fork in the Road, last year and is currently at work on her second.  She lives in Guilford. Karen Gronback Johnson is an ordained pastor in the United Church of Christ, and serves the Old Stone Church in East Haven. As she herself explains, “Karen Gronback Johnson was published a few times long ago. For the past ten years she has been exiled to another life, where she attempts to promote the cause of goodness and love in the world, with a sense of humor.” The reading is free and open to the public.  Refreshments are served.  For more information call 453-8836.
