TIME is the theme of National Poetry Month this year. James Deahl, a poet who recently moved to Sarnia from Hamilton, and I are co-organizing this reading: we hope you will have a good time, hearing how our seven poets approach this subject. Readers include: Beverly (Baila) Ellenbogen, James Deahl, Dave Haskins, Ellen S. Jaffe, Norma West Linder, Chris Pannell, and Lynn Tait — who bring a wide range of voice, experience, and craft to their poetry practice. There will be books for sale and refreshments available. This event is just before the Easter weekend, and during Passover, so come celebrate “the cruellest month” which still has “showers sweet.”
