Balancing Act 2 Poetry Reading
Location: Burbank Branch
Forty-three years after the publication of the original Balancing Act in 1975, Littoral Books has once again gathered poems from women across the State of Maine for Balancing Act 2. This new anthology contains the poetry of 50 Maine women of all ages and from all over the state — some well-known and widely published, others making their publishing debut — together creating a rich, varied, multi-layered volume of contemporary poetry.
The Burbank Branch is hosting a reading by a selection of the 50 poets featured in Balancing Act 2 on Thursday, April 18th. We invite you to join us at 377 Stevens Avenue, 6:30pm-8:00pm, to hear some of Maine’s contemporary female voices in poetry — all are welcome!
