SOLO/DUET Poetry-Music

April 2 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

It is difficult
To get the news from poems,
Yet men die miserably every day

For the lack
Of what is found there

~William Carlos Williams~


The evening will feature solo readings by area poets book-ended by a musical duet. This program is made possible by the West Brookfield Cultural Council as supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
