Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival 2016
I'm delighted to be reading at this year's Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, a special one as it's the 30th anniversary of the festival. The festival is held at the Performing Arts Center in Newark, NJ. It begins on Thursday, October 20, and runs thru Sunday, October 23. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the festival runs from morning into the evening. On Sunday it runs until 5:15 PM.
I'll be reading on Saturday, October 22, along with Robin Becker, Christian Campbell, Marty McConnell, and Aaron Smith. This reading is 5:00 - 6:00 PM in the Trinity-St. Philips Cathedral. Please come and say hi!
Of course, the festival offers much much more. You can get a good Festival Overview at the website.
You can also see the Full Festival Program. This is a detailed list of all events for all four days.
You can also see the Festival Lineup of Poets. Each poet who will be at the festival is included in this list. Just click on each name to be taken to that poet's bio.
The festival consists of individual readings, group readings, panel discussions, and open readings. As if that weren't enough, there's also music, a food court, and a fabulous bookstore hosted by Barnes & Noble. All festival poets will have their books available for sale in the bookstore.
