On Thursday, April 3, 6:45 – 8:45 pm at the Bethlehem Public Library (451 Delaware Ave, Delmar ) Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace, Veterans For Peace & Post Traumatic Press presents a reading from the anthology “Post Traumatic Press 2007: poems by veterans”, edited by Dayl Wise. The featured readers will include Dayl Wise, Jim Murphy, Thomas Brinson and Dan Wilcox.
“Post Traumatic Press 2007: poems by veterans” was put together to tell the stories of veterans with direct experience of the military. For some, the intense experience of war can only be expressed in poetry, while others are driven by the need to say something openly political. The contributors includes veterans from World War II, the Cold War, Korean War, Vietnam War, peace time and the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Copies of the anthology will be available and proceeds supports Veterans For Peace.
This event free and open to the public and will include an open mic for community poets. For more information, call 518-391-2830.
