If you want to celebrate literary pursuits of any kind--anything from Banned Books to Adult Puppet Shows--Old Books on Front Street is the place to be. Owner Gwenyfar Rohler helps our community make note of the gems our distracted culture might let slip by, gems like poetry.
Poetry requires time and reflection and a dash of focus to enjoy. If you feel you've been too busy to roll around in the delightful rays of verse, this weekend (April 18 & 19) is a wonderful opportunity. The heavy lifting has already been done.
