March Madness Poetry Share

March 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

March Madness Poetry Share with Arianna Collins at Ashfield Library

Why are March Hares mad? To ponder this and other questions about life and Spring, join writer and poet Arianna Alexsandra Collins of Offerings for Community Building for an evening of speaking your truth through poetry. This March Madness challenge we toast to our frisky, cabin-fever, crazed, momentary-lapses-of-reason, mad-world poems. (And you don’t have any, find and read someone else’s.) Come read on Wednesday, March 27, 6:30-8:00pm, in the Belding Memorial Library Meeting Room, 344 Main St., Ashfield, MA. Wine and chocolate will be served.
This program is free and open to the public. Please register by contacting Belding Memorial Library at bmlashfield@gmail.com or 413-628-4414.
Sponsored by Belding Memorial Library and Straw Dog Writers Guild.
