In the spotlight...

In each newsletter between now and the festival, we will be highlighting a different session. 


Surrounded by Water: A Group Reading by Martha's Vineyard Poets

Saturday, May 3 • 1:30 - 2:30 p.m.
Hawthorne Hotel, Library
with Justen Ahren, Rachel Baird, and more
Sometimes you just can't leave! Representative poets from Martha's Vineyard will provide a sense of their lives surrounded by multiple bodies of water. Martha is an unforgiving mystery, even to other residents of our state. Reading from works that cast a distinct view of what it means to live off-shore in MA, these poems provide compelling reasons to stay or to go.
