May Day

Two Deerbrook poets will be at the May Day Peace event.
Mimi White author of The Last Island who received the Jane Kenyon Award for poetry, and Martin Steingesser, author of Brothers of Morning and The Thinking Heart will be reading. There are several good poets, and I think each reads three poems but this sounds like a warm way to celebrate May Day.
Thanks goes out to Gary Lawless at Gulf of Maine, USM, and LA Arts.
