(4.26) No salon this week; it is time for the fifteenth annual Philbrick Poetry Project reading with poet judge Dennis Barone and honoree David O’Connell.
Join us for the presentation and a reading by both poets. As part of the Project, the Athenaeum will publish O’Donnell’s manuscript, A Better Way to Fall, as a chapbook; copies will be sold at the reading. The Philbrick Poetry Project is named for long-time Athenaeum members Charles Philbrick, a noted poet, and his wife Deborah, a mentor to many poets, and fosters the art of poetry in RI and New England.
For more about Mr. O’Connell and the Philbrick Poetry Project go here.
Free and open to the public, 7pm, Friday, April 26, Providence Athenaeum, 251 Benefit Street
