Takoma Park Arts Online Poetry Reading

Please join us for the next online poetry reading in the Takoma Park Arts cultural series where four local poets will read their work on a diverse range of themes. The poets include Catherine Allen, Jamie Ferrugia, Virginia Hartman, and Gary Stein. The reading premieres at 7:30 pm on May 28 on YouTube or you can watch it later.

Allen is a retired anthropologist whose poetry often focuses on her extensive field work in the Andes mountains of Peru. Ferrrugia, a retired financial advisor, has had his poetry and music published in various publications.

Hartman was a 2019 Pushcart Prize nominee whose poetry has appeared in Hudson Review, Potomac Review, and other publications. Stein’s book, Touring the Shadow Factory, won the Brick Road Poetry Press contest.

The Takoma Park Arts series is organized by the City of Takoma Park. You can find more details and sign up for our e-newsletter on the City’s website. Many of our former events can be watched on our YouTube channel, including concerts, theater and dance performances, art exhibitions, poetry readings, and more. Please join us and celebrate the arts!
