One of my favorite poets - Polly Brody has a new book out! She will give a first reading from her new book, "Stirring Shadows," on November 18, at 7 p.m. Hosted by the Southbury Public Library (100 Poverty Rd.) Author signing and refreshments after reading. Registration requested: call 203-262-0626 Ext. 130. (See the directions tab on the library's web site...) I should also mention that this is a gorgeous library with tons of parking onsite.
