Balancing Act 2 Poetry Reading

Saturday, February 09 - 11:00am - 3:00pm
Location: Lewis Gallery
Audience: Adults

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.

Portland Public Library is hosting a marathon reading by a selection of the 50 poets featured in Balancing Act 2 on Saturday, February 9th. We invite you to stop by our Lewis Gallery between 11am-3pm to hear some of Maine’s contemporary female voices in poetry — all are welcome!
