On Saturday, January 26, the New Haven Bioregional Group will host Guilford Poets Guild member Jen Payne for a poetry reading and book signing featuring her book Evidence of Flossing: What We Leave Behind. The event, held at the First Unitarian Universalist Society of New Haven (608 Whitney Avenue, New Haven), begins with a potluck supper at 6PM, followed by the reading at 7PM.
Come listen to a selection of poems that are, at their heart, love poems to the something greater within all of us. Inspired by Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, and Mary Oliver, they explore the human condition juxtaposed to the natural world and the possibility of divine connection.

Evidence of Flossing: What We Leave Behind, the new book by Guilford Poets Guild member Jen Payne, will make an appearance at Rock Garden in Branford on Saturday, November 18 from 11am – 2pm. See the Evidence, meet the author, and support local business during this November book signing event.
Evidence of Flossing: What We Leave Behind follows on the heels of Payne’s 2014 well-received book LOOK UP! Musings on the Nature of Mindfulness, and continues a dialogue about our innate connection with nature. It features 73 poems and more than 80 original and vintage photographs, including a series of discarded dental flossers that inspired the title of the book.
The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Rock Garden is located at 17 South Main Street, Branford, CT. For more information and to purchase copies of the book, please visit www.3chairspublishing.com.
