Poets Laureate in the House!

On Thursday, October 12 – as part of the Guilford Performing Arts Festival – the Guilford Poets Guild welcomed five state Poets Laureate to the Guilford Free Library: Tarn Granucci (Wallingford), Joan Hofmann (Canton), Laurel Peterson (Norwalk), and our own Patricia O’Brien (Old Saybrook) and Gordy Whiteman (Guilford). The group was joined by special guest Dick Allen, past Poet Laureate of Connecticut. Although Middletown Poet Laureate Susan Allison was unable to attend, several of her poems were shared with the enthusiastic audience, which also enjoyed diverse open mic presentations by several local poets.
