The Moon, The Dark, and The River: Winter Solstice Candlelight Poetry Reading
This is the 13th Winter Solstice Candelight Poetry Reading, a poetry tradition in Placitas and other locations. Google "Winter Solstice Candelight Poetry Reading" without including "NM" or "Placitas" and see for yourself how many.
In Placitas, twelve poets from the Southwest and beyond each read a poem to the light of a single burning candle. Between readings, a short interlude of silence provides a moment of contemplation at the close of another year.
This year's poets are Tani Arness (featured reader Picnic 2010), Gary L. Brower (featured reader Picnic 2010, editor Malpaís Review), Jim Fish (Anasazi Fields), Elizabeth Ann Galligan, John Orne Green (organizer), Dale Harris (Picnic organizer, Sandoval Post's Featured Artist), Kat Heatherington, Michelle Holland, Charles Little, Kimberly Summers, Rachelle Woods, and Richard Wolfson
Afterwards meet and chat over refreshments in the church's fellowship hall. A chapbook of the poems will be available at the reading. For more info, please contact John Green at 867-0240 or email jogreenalb [at] aol [dot] com
