This is first of three planned collaborations between Quincy College, the library and the County Correctional Facility in 2017 bringing poetry and other works of literature to the greater Plymouth community. Prior to this meeting, the students and inmates will be notified of the list of poems they will be expected to read; the inmates will read the same poems on their own.
Following the visit to PCCF, at 4 p.m. April 12, the Quincy College community and staff from the PCCF will join members of the library to share some of these poems with the larger community through a poetry reading that will also include students, staff, librarians and community members sharing their original work.
South Shore community members are welcome to attend the Voices from Within Poetry Reading at the Plymouth Public Library, as well as anyone who wishes to read a poem of their choosing. During this event, the Quincy College students who participated in reading poetry with selected inmates at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility will share their experiences.
A reading by Tidepool Poets will be held at 7 p.m. April 19 as well as Robert Knox, Boston Globe correspondent, from his new chapbook titled “Gardeners Do It With Their Hands Dirty” at 7 p.m. April 24. All programs are free and are located in the Otto Fehlow Meeting room.
For more information on this event, contact the Plymouth Public Library at 508-830-4250.
