Dear Poetry Friends,

After a cool and cloudy spring, the sun has arrived!  And who better to bring us into the fold of summer’s heat than Bernadette McBride?  What a generous poet: in words, music, art, and her support of other poets.  I’m looking forward to hearing a collection of her work, especially from her most recent book, Whatever Measure of Light.

When: Friday night at 8pm

Where: The Newtown Library Company, 114 E. Centre Ave. Newtown, PA  18940

Who: Bernadette McBride

Who Else: YOU on the open mike

Bring a poem, bring a friend!

On the doorstep of summer,

Susan Gerardi Bello
