The Andover Community Hub
Winter Light Poetry Reading
A reading by the Blackwater Poets will take place at Andover’s Community Hub, featuring poet Laurie Zimmerman, who will be joined by poets Susan Norris, Sarah Will, and (virtually) Ethney McMahon. This long-established Andover group will present an evening of contemporary lyric poetry, with poems influenced by the woodlands and lakes surrounding the Blackwater River and shadowed by Kearsarge, Ragged, and Tucker Mountains.
