On exhibit this month at the library are poems by Toussaint St. Negritude. As Poet Laureate of Belfast, Maine, Toussaint sponsors a myriad of poetry programing, from bi-weekly readings, to collaborative performances of local poets and other artists, to the creation of the upcoming journal of poetry, Geezum Crow, to hosting the annual Belfast Poetry Festival. He has just published a new book of poems, Upheave, by Trenchant Fist Press, 2014.
Enjoy an evening of Poetry and Jazz with Toussaint at the library on Saturday, April 23 at 6:30pm. He conjures all crossroads of jazz, blues, folk, and collective liberation, via the back-road palette of his bass clarinet and the ample declarations of a voice well worth the view. Refreshments will be served.
