The Connecticut Coalition of Poets Laureate is excited to announce the release of the first book of poems written by its members, Laureates of Connecticut: An Anthology of Contemporary Poetry, edited by Ginny Lowe Connors & Charles Margolis. The new anthology highlights the work of 24 poets from 17 towns in Connecticut who have been awarded the title “Poet Laureate” in their communities. Poets Laureate serve as public ambassadors for poetry, bringing it into the public realm. The Connecticut Coalition of Poets Laureate sponsored this book, so that the general public can learn more about the poetry emissaries of Connecticut and can sample some of their poetry.

Come and meet some members of the Connecticut Coalition of Poets Laureate and hear some members read their poems aloud. Refreshments will be served. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
