One Hot Poetry Share

August 16, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

One Hot Poetry Share with Arianna Alexsandra Collins at Belding Memorial Library

One Hot Poetry Share with Arianna Alexsandra Collins at Belding Memorial LibraryIt’s so darn hot that even the poetry is sizzling!

On Wednesday, August 16 from 6:30 – 8:00pm, join writer and poet Arianna Alexsandra Collins of Offerings for Community Building for an evening of speaking your truth through poetry. August’s Poetry Share challenge is to find and read your poems that illustrate summer, hot weather, and passion. Or if you’re feeling too darn hot read a poem that involves ways to cool down. (And if you don’t have any poems, read someone else’s.)

Wine and chocolate will be served.

Held in the Belding Memorial Library Meeting Room, 344 Main St., Ashfield, MA

This program is free and open to the public. Please register by contacting Belding Memorial Library at bmlashfield@gmail.com or 413-628-4414.
