SHAWNA FOUNDATION LAUNCHES UNIQUE LIBRARY POETRY TOUR IN UXBRIDGE AND MILFORD
The Shawna Foundation presents The Library Poetry Tour, bringing live poetry readings to the Milford Town Library and the Uxbridge Free Library quarterly throughout 2023. The readings will be held quarterly, hosted by Tony Brown, the winner of the 2022 Stanley Kunitz Medal, endowed by the late U.S. Poet Laureate and Worcester native and awarded annually to a poet for lifetime achievement and service to the Central Massachusetts poetry community.
Robin Ballou Boucher is the featured poet for February. Robin is on the Board of Directors of the Worcester County Poetry Association and has studied with local poets, attended writing retreats and workshops and has taken classes through Grub Street and with Stanford University.
The first readings of 2023 will be held on February 8, 7 p.m. at the Milford Town Library and February 16, 7 p.m. at the Uxbridge Free Library. The program is financed in part by the Milford Cultural Council and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
