Please join us on Tuesday, May 23 at 6:15pm for a special poetry reading of Chorale: A Poetry Anthology.

Chorale is a poetry anthology that includes work from 10 Maine poets. Poets whose work is included in the anthology and who will be reading at this event are Martin Steingesser, Judy Tierney, Dr. Mary Dowd, Alan Harawitz, Sarah Hyde, Bill Gregory, Melissa Mirarchi, and Deb Pfeffer.

"Chorale had its beginning ground in 2016 with two grants for a series of poetry workshops in one of the Maine Arts Commission's Creative Aging programs - myself recipient of the grants as the Teaching Artist. We subsequently changed the workshop group into an independent poetry one (no longer funded by the grants) and myself now an equal member of the group." - Martin Steingesser

"These poets write about passages—their own and our country’s—looking deeply at the world as they find it. They investigate those profound memories that shape us throughout our lives and examine the natural world that can transform us every day. They are a community of writers, and their poems at times become a call and response, voices joined together to create images and stories that evoke and complement each other. At a time in our world when darkness feels omnipresent, these poets remind us that there is light in everything as well."
—Stuart Kestenbaum, Maine’s 5th Poet Laureate
