A truly wonderful evening of poetry is in the making! On Monday, April 29, at the Chester Meeting House at 7 p.m., the Chester Public Library’s third annual poetry celebration, coordinated by Chester poet Pam Nomura, will feature readings by four poets living in Chester. They are George Bradley, Tim Napier, Christine Palm, and Hannah Watkins. They will be joined by selected 6th grade poets from Chester Elementary School.

A Chester Poets Chapbook is being created for the event, thanks to the generosity of Whelen Engineering. These will be for sale at the event, along with books from the featured poets. Proceeds from the chapbooks will go toward the future library expansion. During the evening, music will be provided by Dan Bernier and John Williams, and refreshments will be served. The poetry reading event is free.
