Join us for an an amazing line-up of poets published by, and on the volunteer team of, Perugia Press. This Poetry Month gala features just some of the women poets we’ve published and those who make our feminist press tick, all in a gorgeous space at I.M.A., another org that honors creativity & women. We’ll have readings, refreshments, a little music & poetry books on sale. This event is free to attend, and donations will be accepted at the door to support Perugia Press & the Florence Poetry Carnival (our reading is a prelude event to the Florence Poetry Carnival on 4/30, of which we are a proud sponsor).
Featured performers on April 29 include Perugia poets Janet E. Aalfs, Carol Edelstein, Rebecca Pelky & Gail Thomas and friends of Perugia Press poets DeMisty Bellinger, Amy Dryansky, Shanta Lee Gander, Marie Gauthier, Kitty Petruccelli, Tzynya Pinchback, Adrie Rose, Sarah Sousa, Yasotha Sriharan & musician Sam Brown.
Re: Covid: The expectation is that attendees will be vaxxed and boosted. And, because Covid numbers have increased a bit since we first planned this event, we will also expect folks to mask up during the event (though performers will be unmasked while on stage). The space is large and airy and will permit room for distancing if desired as well. We want you to feel safe and comfortable!
