Since May 2020, the WCPA has helped a few community poetry readings with virtual events. The Thirsty Lab poetry reading, normally based out of Princeton, Mass., was one of our first. On Tuesday, September 28, 2021, Jeffrey Thomson will be the featured reader.
Visit the Zoom registration link to receive information on how to join the reading. Zoom will send you an e-mail with the meeting details and a link to join.
