In honor of the International Day of Peace, several published poets will read famous and original poetry in Glens Falls, New York tonight. If you have Word, click on the link that follows. If you don’t, then know that some heavyweight poets like Jay Rogoff, Paul Pines, and the 3 Poets of the Adirondacks (Elaine Handley, Marilyn McCabe, and Mary Sanders Shartle) will be reading at Rock Hill Bakehouse at 7 (click here for Google Maps).
Before that, we’ll hold a Candlelight Peace Vigil 6:00-6:30 at the Roundabout in front of Congressman Scott Gibson‘s office. As part of these events, hundreds of local schoolchildren and a few college students from Glens Falls, South Glens Falls, and SUNY Adirondack wrote messages and poems on pinwheels that we will leave for the congressman as a testament and obligation of Americans to pursue the peace that children and sages hold as an ideal and a goal.
