Lloyd Schwartz-- Somerville Poet Laureate--Announces!

"My first event as poet laureate is called Poems We Love, in which a grand variety of Somerville residents, including the mayor, the former mayor and congresman, members of the city council, state reps, and the Somerville Arts Council, social activists, librarians, teachers, school kids, writers, artists, actors, doctors, and Miss Black Massachusetts of 2018 will each read a poem or song lyric they love. It's all happening at the Somerville Armory on Wednesday evening April 17, at 7:00 PM. It's free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. You don't have to live in Somerville to attend. 

Then on Saturday morning, April 20, at 10:00 AM, anyone who'd like to talk with me about poetry is invited to join me at the East Branch Public Library on Broadway. We''ll be discussing Robert Hayden's great and moving poem about his father, "Those Winter Sundays." Copies of the poem will be provided."
