Poetry Readings at Stratford Library May 1
“Not Yet Dead Poets Society” Members to Read Original Works
The Stratford Library has rescheduled its “Not Yet Dead Poets Society” for a special program of original writings, to Sunday, May 1 at 3 pm. The program, originally slated in April, is free and open to the public.
The senior members of the “Not Yet Dead Poets Society” are all residents of The Watermark at 3030 Park in Bridgeport. The group began in December 2013 when several former journalists living at the Watermark found each other. Seeking a teacher/mentor for a writers’ workshop, they contacted Dr. Regina Krummel, a retired professor who had taught creative writing at Queens College, City University of New York. The group of women, all with professional writing backgrounds and publishing credits, are: Gloria Sugarman, Daphne Opdyke, Carol Gursky, Liz Barzda and Irene Backalenick. For the Library program the women will share their original poetry, essays and short stories.
The “Not Yet Dead Poets Society” will be held from 3-4 pm in the Lovell Room of the Stratford Library on May 1. No reservations necessary. Doors open at 2:30 pm for general seating.
