Liberty Library to present Poetry Festival 

Posted

LIBERTY - The Liberty Museum & Arts Center and Sullivan County Performing Arts, invites you to hear readings of original works of poetry by the authors on Saturday, September 25 via Zoom on your computer. The reading begins at 2:00 p.m.

This year’s poets hail from a variety of local towns, and also from N.Y. City and Westchester. They write in a variety of styles, and on many topics, and there is sure to be something of interest for everyone to enjoy.

This popular, ever-growing event is the twelfth annual Poetry Festival presented by the Liberty Museum & Arts Center. It was started by then- Liberty Poet Laureate Walter Keller, at the Museum building on 46 South Main Street, and was held there annually, until the pandemic created distancing problems last year.

Now coordinated and moderated by Marilyn Laufer, Museum Board member and current Liberty Village Poet Laureate, we are planning a “hybrid” reading this year…some poets will read in person and the others via Zoom at the invitation and with the assistance of Liberty Public Library director Marj Linko, in the library’s newly-renovated and spacious meeting room.

In order to be invited to attend on Zoom, contact Marj at mlinko@rcls.org or call the library at (845) 292-6070 with your information and she will send you a link that day. Any questions, call Marilyn at (845) 292-6628.

September 25 also marks the opening of a new artist show at the Liberty Museum, featuring local painter Janet LeRoy. That event, from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m., is also free and features refreshments in the summer garden area. Janet’s beautiful work will be displayed until October 16.
