Word Thursdays Online

 

Our in-person featured poet reading series, Word Thursdays, in its 28th year, transitioned to an online platform when quarantine began; instead of our scheduled writer, who was unable to attend due to circumstances of the pandemic, we opened our season with the New York State Poet Laureate, Alicia Ostriker, who read poetry while quarantined in her apartment in New York City!
