Poetry returns to Woodstock on Saturday, March 9, for the monthly Woodstock Poetry Society reading and open mic at the Golden Notebook (29 Tinker Street, Woodstock). Host Phillip X Levine is welcoming two fantastic poets this time around, Bruce Weber and Celia Watson Seupel to the reading.

Bruce Weber is a poet and American art historian. He is the author of five books of poetry, the most recent is The Breakup of My First Marriage (Rogue Scholars Press). He has been published widely, and recently moved full time to Saugerties, where he has been focusing much of his time lecturing and writing about the historic Woodstock art colony.

Celia Watson Seupel is a poet and journalist living in New York City and High Falls, NY. Her poems have appeared in various literary magazines and her two books of poetry, The Drum and the Melody and Night Feet were published by The Smith Press. She is also the author of a memoir, Eating the Shadow, as well as two books on career choices. Her essays and articles have been published by The New York Times, cnbc.com, and in a variety of magazines and websites.
