Mass Poetry’s Common Threads: Seven Poets and a Wealth of Readers

This just in from Mass Poetry’s site:

“10,000 people will read 7 poems in April. Will you be one of them? National Poetry Month is coming up in April, and Massachusetts Poetry has an ambitious program for the state that perhaps has produced more poets than any other in the nation. During April, in libraries, schools, colleges, book clubs, senior groups, bookstores, and specially organized potlucks, the organization hopes to have 10,000 Massachusetts citizens reading seven poems by seven poets who work currently or have worked in Massachusetts. The program, called Common Threads: Seven Poets and a Wealth of Readers, will be a run-up to the third Massachusetts Poetry Festival in Salem on May 13th and 14th.”
