This coming weekend, November 12, is the Studio in the Woods’ annual fundraiser, FORESTival, and I’m thrilled to be joining poets Cassie Pruyn, Gina Ferrara, and Stacey Balkun for a series of pop-up poetry readings over the course of the day. Each poet will read before and between musical acts, including local favorites Sweet Crude and Johnny Angel, presenting works on landscape and place. Running from 11am to 5pm, the festival is free with a small donation suggested. More information is available on the ASITW website, or in an interview on “Inside the Arts” on WWNO radio. And for those who have never visited, the bottomland hardwood forest of the lower coast is the perfect place to spend an autumn day.
