Upcoming Poetry Anthology Readings

clb-reading-ad

The editors of Cayuga Lake Books would like to welcome you to the upcoming launch-readings from our new book—

From the Finger Lakes: A Poetry Anthology.

Each event will feature twelve different authors from the book.  After each reading, you’re invited to socialize with the authors, enjoy refreshments, and if you like, purchase personally signed copies.  

The first event will be from 2:00 to 4:00 on Sunday, November 6 at Buffalo Street Books.

The second one will be from 2:00 to 4:00 on Saturday, November 19 in the Borg Warner Roof of the Tompkins Country Library.  

We hope you can come to one or both of the events to support our authors and hear great poetry.

Salutations!

I’m proud to say that all of the events that Cayuga Lake Books has been a part of have been attended very well, and all of the readings have been absolutely lovely.

Jack Hopper started off the proceedings at Lifelong on Thursday night by introducing Edward Hower and the anthology.

Then the aforementioned Edward came to the podium to introduce the first reader, Diane Ackerman.

Diane read her piece in the anthology, which is an excerpt from Cultivating Delight.

Steve Poleskie read next, and he read Jitterbug, a short story that he’d been holding onto for over twenty years, but it’s just been published.

Unfortunately, Gene Endres couldn’t be there, so Edward came back up to the podium, and he read Gene’s piece in the anthology instead.

Our finishing reader was Carol Kammen, who wrote the introduction to the anthology.
