Dan Shanahan's Poetry Reading on March 8th was a wonderful success. The Community Room was filled to capacity. His poetry and the imagery of his presentation, as well as the live music accompaniment, created a memorable event! His new poem about the library was especially well-received.
We want to do this again, and have invited Danny to return. Plans are underway for another reading on the afternoon of Saturday May 24, 2014. We hope that Shakuhachi flute master Robert Jonas and local singer-songwriter-flautist Steve Sleboda will again be able to participate. Stay tuned for details.
One reviewer of the March 8th reading wrote, "I have heard Dan Shanahan read his poetry many times over the last 35 years and I have heard him read many of the poems he featured in Saturday’s event before at various stages of their evolution, but I have never witnessed such a convergence of sacred memories married to language evocative of a particular time and place effortlessly spilling over into universal truths of our human condition."
