Thur., Apr. 1: Litchfield Tea & Poetry

Two fine poets will be featured on Thursday, April 1, in the Litchfield Tea & Poetry Series. JIM LUNDY, of Charleston, is new on our schedule this month. We're lucky to have this chance to hear him! He has a wry sense of humor and a delightfully quirky take on his many and varied subjects. He and PAT RIVIERE-SEEL are a perfect pairing. Pat will keep the emotional tenor high with poems about a serial killer and her daughter, inspired by the true story of NC murderer Velma Barfield.

What a broad range of poetry we're in for--from wit to murder and mayhem, and more. It's spring--what a grand time to come out to a poetry reading. Hope to see you there!
