Happy July 4th William Carlos Williams Reading and More


Happy Independence Day!

John J. Trause will co-host with Jane Fisher, Rutherford Free Public Library Director, this excellent series, now in its fifth year, so please come by for this upcoming reading. Mark your calendars now!

NOTE that this series will be on FIRST Wednesdays each month from now on!

The WCW Poetry Cooperative of Southern Bergen County is holding the annual Open Reading as our next feature on Wednesday, July 7, 2010 at 7:00 p. m. All poets are invited to share their work in a full evening of poetry. As usual this monthly program will also feature the words of William Carlos Williams and open readings from the floor. No advanced registration is required and all poets and poetry lovers are invited. Note that we are now holding the WCW Poetry Cooperative readings on the Terrace of the Williams Center for the Arts (www.williamscenter.org) located at 1 Williams Plaza in Rutherford, N. J.

Also, please remember that noted poet Jim Klein leads our peer-to-peer poetry workshops (Red Wheelbarrow Poets) on Wednesdays (2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th) when we do not have the readings. These will continue in the Rutherford Free Public Library (www.rutherfordlibrary.org). Please see the flyer here:

Remember that the Rutherford Red Wheelbarrow Poets published last year volume 2 of The Rutherford Red Wheelbarrow anthology including five poems of mine, those of many others associated with the WCW Poetry Cooperative and literary life in Rutherford, and some excellent essays. Copies of the anthology are on sale now, so please contact the editors at redwheelbarrowpoets@yahoo.com, if you would like more information or like to purchase a copy or two. They make excellent birthday or holiday gifts for poetry lovers and anyone who loves literature and history.

Please come out and support these creative endeavors.
