Poetry, Poignancy and Possibility – Celebrating National Poetry Month with CT Poet Laureate Antoinette Brim-Bell

April 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

CT United States

For the fourth consecutive year, Mercy by the Sea will celebrate National Poetry Month, a worldwide celebration launched more than 25 years ago by the Academy of American Poets.
This year’s featured poet is Antoinette Brim-Bell, Connecticut’s 8th State Poet Laureate. She is the author of three full-length poetry collections: These Women You Gave Me, Icarus in Love, and Psalm of the Sunflower. Brim-Bell is also a Cave Canem Foundation Fellow and an alumna of Voices of Our Nations Arts Foundation (VONA). Brim-Bell was nominated for the Pushcart Prize twice for poetry and essay.

Mercy by the Sea’s onsite program will include readings of select poems by Brim-Bell who will touch upon her writing process, inspirations and challenges. She will engage with participants through a question-and-answer session, book signing and at a beverage service/reception. One of the author’s books will be available for sale.
