Poetry Nashua: Share poems and discuss poetry on the first Tuesday of each month in the activity room on the lower level of the Nashua Public Library. Poets of all levels and ages are welcome!
Nashua Public Library
2 Court St., Nashua, NH
The next gathering for Poetry Nashua is Tuesday, May 7, at 6PM (ET) at the Nashua Public Library.  Jimmy Pappas is the featured reader.
Jimmy Pappas served in Vietnam during the war training South Vietnamese soldiers by teaching them English so they could work with American helicopter pilots. He retired from teaching at Somersworth High School where he created the greatest accomplishment of his life: a popular philosophy class. 
Jimmy won the Rattle Chapbook Contest with Falling off the Empire State Building, won the Rattle Readers Choice Award for “Bobby’s Story,” and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize by Rattle for “The Gray Man.” He now moderates a weekly themed Zoom event called “A Conversation with Jimmy and Friends” that encourages audience participation. He also does monthly writing workshops.
An open mic will follow Jimmy’s reading.  Bring a poem or two to share.  The library allows you to bring  a covered container non-alcoholic beverage.  Your published works are welcomed to be sold by you – remember to bring change for the cash sales.
