Rozzie Reads Poetry
Rozzie Reads Poetry is a long-running monthly poetry series sponsored by the Friends of the Roslindale Library. The series is organized by a committee which includes Steve Babcock, Dorothy Derifield, Holly Guran (coordinator), Mary McCusker, and Vivienne Shalom. The readings take place on Thursdays at 7:00 pm and are free. Refreshments are provided and voluntary donations are welcome.
For the past two and a half years, the readings have been held on Zoom. This continues (hybrid), and happily this fall, Rozzie Reads Poetry returns live to the community room at Roslindale House (for map and directions, see below). At each reading there are two featured poets, followed by a lively open mic. Many find this a comfortable place to try out their recent work. For more information and for the Zoom link, contact Holly Guran – no later than 6:30 PM on the day of the reading.
