No plans tomorrow? (1/7/09)

Then head to the Forbes Library in Northampton to see not one, not two, but three local poets, all at the same event. The info is below, copied from my work email:

The Sixth Annual Poetry Series at Forbes Library Presents Three Local Poets: Eddie Bartok-Baratta, Michael Arraj, & Anna Bayles Arthur.

Forbes Library, Coolidge Museum
Wednesday, January 7, 7:00 p.m.
Free & Open to the Public

Eddie will emcee this event and introduce Michael Arraj and Anna Bayles Arthur, as well as recite his own poems and play wild & dynamic original flute compositions.

A former postal worker and letter carrier Michael Arraj walks house-to-house visiting the daily soul of each of us, philosophically exploring what concerns, or should concern everyone. A philosopher, a large heart, and a public servant through language.

Northampton artist Anna Bayles Arthur has had shows most recently at Cotuit Center for the Arts in Cape Cod, Kasini House Gallery in Burlington, VT, Gallery 204 in Northampton, and Forbes Library’s own Hosmer Gallery. Eddie Bartók-Baratta calls her painting and drawing poignant, powerful, and soulful. Adjectives equally true of Ms. Bayles Arthur’s poetry. This event is her debut as a poet.

I wish I could attend this reading, but alas I have a crafting date tomorrow, which will be just as fun & inspiring. Pictures forthcoming! If someone goes, let me know how it went!
