Here's a slideshow of an event I ran on Saturday, March 14. This was the second year this event ran, again at the West Caldwell Public Library in West Caldwell, NJ. Called "Girl Talk: A Women's Poetry Reading," the event was held in celebration of Women's History Month.
This year we had 25 women poets read. Each poet read one poem on a woman-related topic. The result was a wonderful mixture of styles, topics, voices. It is not a male-bashing opportunity but rather a celebration of womanhood and sisterhood.
We had a great turnout and read to a full room, somewhere around 70-80 people, young and old, male and female.
Following the reading, we had a tea party consisting of many tasty treats prepared by the poets. We went home well-nourished.
