Amesbury Public Library begins its 2020 poetry series, with featured poet, Toni Treadway. Toni has been a member of the Powow River Poets since 2004. Her first poetry book “Late Harvest” came last year from Kelsay Books. Its title poem was a runner up for the 2019 Robert Frost Prize in Lawrence, Mass. She became co-organizer of the Powow Poets reading series at the Newburyport Public Library in 2015. She listens for music in nature and to share old struggles with odd friends. A handful of her poems are online with links on her page at the PowowRiverPoets.com website. She restores old movie film for archives with her partner Bob Brodsky and they sing in the Newburyport Choral Society. Toni is an enthusiastic reader at the Whittier Home's Tapestry of Voices poetry event held each August.
The Amesbury Public Library, 149 Main St. hosts a monthly poetry series with an open mic. Each month there is a featured poet followed by a discussion, an open mic and light refreshments. Ellie O'Leary, Amesbury Poet Laureate, hosts this event. Free and open to the public. For info: amesburypubliclibrary.org or 978-388-9771
