Program Description

Event Details

Two Farmington poets, Sharon Smith and D. Walsh Gilbert, will launch their newest poetry books:

· reflection by Sharon Smith

· [M]AR[Y] by D. Walsh Gilbert

Both books focus on family matters:

In reflection, Sharon Smith shares her take on various aspects of her life with humor, insight, and always a sense of wonder, and the relocation of the poet’s aunt from New York City into an assisted living community is recalled in [M]AR[Y] written by D. Walsh Gilbert.

An open mic will precede the featured readings for any audience member—one or two one-page poems please. Young/student poets are encouraged to read. Sign-up at the door.

Discussion, Q&A, and Book signings will follow the readings.
