Join us for an afternoon of Nantucket poets reading from their work. The program begins with short readings from Kathy Butterworth, Bobby Frazier, Amy Jenness, Mary Ellen Redmond, John Stanton and Lucretia Shattles Voight and concludes with a longer reading from featured poet Monica Flegg.

In addition to writing, Monica walks dogs of various breeds and reads poetry of all creeds. Besides her family, she is passionate about words and water. She frequently finds herself submerged in both.

Free Admission.

*Running on The Waves is an excerpt from Robert Lowell’s famous poem 'The Quaker Graveyard In Nantucket.
