Sunday, Nov. 26, from 3:30 to 4:30 pm, the West Tisbury library will host its biannual Community Poetry Reading, featuring community members reading their own poems and/or the poems of others. According to a press release, you can help keep the tradition alive by attending as a reader, a listener, or both. This event is hosted by West Tisbury’s poet laureate, Emma Young. As always, numbers will be drawn from a hat to determine the reading order. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public.
Poet laureate Young is a designer, printmaker, and writer native to Martha’s Vineyard. Two Plums Press in Portland, Ore., recently released a collection of her poems, called “Book to Share,” comprised of works both previously unpublished and selections from her handprinted and bound chapbooks.
