Part of a series developed by Ridgefield Poet Laureate Barb Jennes.
Throughout the month of September, KTM&HC will host a series of themed, Tuesday evening poetry readings in the museum’s historic, walled gardens.
On September 14, a trio of poets — Joan Kwon Glass (Milford Poet Laureate), Barb Jennes (Ridgefield Poet Laureate), and James Diaz, poetry editor of the on-line journal Anti-Heroin Chic — will be featured in a program intended to raise awareness of the often-interconnected issues of addiction, depression, and suicide. Information from To Write Love on Her Arms, a non-profit dedicated to helping individuals in crisis find hope and help, will be available at the event.
Free and open to the public! Bring your own chair or blanket. Mask-wearing is recommended; six-foot spacing is required. The poets’ books will be available for sale. Parking is available on-site and across Main Street at Jesse Lee Church.
Rain venue: Ridgefield Guild of Artists at 34 Halpin Lane, Ridgefield.
