Chester gallery reading with two poets from GPG

You’re invited to a reading in the round by members of the Connecticut River Poetry Conference in Maple and Main’s Stone Gallery (One Maple Street, Chester, CT 06412) on Wednesday, July 19 from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. A reception of wine and food follows.

This special event, open to the public, is the second year the group has read in the Stone Gallery where “Sharing the Vision,” a two-woman exhibit by Maple and Main artists Linda DeStefanis and Barbara Rossitto is being shown during July.

For the past seven years a singular group of poets meets for a summer week of workshops, seminars, readings, camaraderie and literary high-jinx at Chester’s Guest House Conference Center Shoreline. Gray Jacobik, a poet and Maple and Main artist, and Nancy Fitz-Hugh Meneely founded this conference, which grew out of an advanced poetry seminar at The Frost Place in Franconia, NH.

Jacobik and Meneely will be joined by notable and much-published poets: Ruth Foley of Attleboro, MA., Sharon Olson of Lawrenceville, NJ., Carole Stasiowski of Cotuit, MA., Hiram Larew of Upper Marlboro, MD., Anne Harding Woodworth of Washington, D.C., and Lawrence Wray of Pittsburgh, PA.
