My first poetry reading in Ithaca, NY, will be this Saturday, Sept. 27. I have read earlier at my university — JNU, New Delhi — in the hoary past where doing theater workshops and reading others’ and my own poetry minus any intention for publication or exposure used to be our pastime!
The theme of this reading is “apples” widely interpreted and coinciding
with the annual Apple Harvest Festival downtown.
“Ithaca Community Poets and Writers Read”
The Community School of Music and Arts, CSMA Gallery
Coordinated by Katharyn Howd Machan (former Tompkins County Poet Laureate), who will also read from her work.
3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
330 E State Street
I have heard Katharyn recite and perform before. It’s an absolute delight. Although my voice is under attack from a bad cold, I hope to engage. It’s not singing, after all! So, welcome everyone.
