Program Description: Living Poetry at the Library with poets Mahogany L. Browne & Jive Poetic is an evening of poetry, prose, and performance. This annual literary event celebrates and introduces diverse literary artists to community members presenting different literary traditions to the community as an opportunity for cultural exchange and growth. A discussion and reception follows the reading, allowing audience members to share their reactions, and to interact with the poets and each other.
This program is part of the library’s inaugural Curator-In-Residence program with Mahogany L. Browne, in celebration of the library’s 60th Anniversary.

Program Description: This event represents an ongoing collaboration between Fence, a locally produced, nationally renowned literary press, and the Home School, an annual poetry conference that takes place in Hudson every summer and which brings more than 60 poets to meet, study, read, and write. This collaboration puts visiting poets and the Home School community in touch with our local community of readers and writers at the library.
