Celebrate National Poetry Month on April 15th by attending the Poetry Salon at the Abbot Public Library! The Salon will focus on the Common Threads project associated with the Massachusetts Poetry Festival, which will run from May 4th – 6th in Salem. We will discuss eight poems by poets with close ties to Massachusetts, from Anne Sexton and Marie Howe to Martin Espada and Herman Melville.

The full roster of poems and poets is available online. Participants can download the poems and background material for free or order the collection from the Harvard Bookstore. Copies of the poems will be available at the Library’s Main Desk before the Salon.

Please join Claire Keyes, Marblehead Poet and Professor Emerita at Salem State University, on Sunday, April 15th, from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm.

The Library’s monthly Poetry Salon is supported in part by a grant from the Marblehead Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
