Greetings from the President

We have had some wonderful events take place during National Poetry Month this April and will continue to focus on poetry and readings for this year’s Meredith Awardee for Poetry, Gray Jacobik.

Her book, THE BANQUET was launched during a beautiful reading and reception at the Bulgarian Embassy in Washington, on April 15th.

Mayor Michael Passero Proclaimed April 22nd as William Meredith Day in the City of New London. On that day, Gray gave a beautiful reading at Connecticut College with introductions by me and Ct. Poet Laureate, Rennie McQuilkin. Valentin Krustev conducted an extensive interview with me on the Meredith celebrations which can be found at the following link in the Archive section of the website. Here is a photo of the Mayor’s proclamation on the 18th.

This summer, we continue to celebrate the 2016 Meredith winner at readings at the Courtyard Gallery in Mystic, July 11, the Savoy Book Store in Westerly, R.I. on August 17th, and the Writers Center in Bethesda along with Michael Collier on September 11th. I’ll be sending more detailed information shortly on these events.

Meanwhile, we wish you all the pleasures of summer and hope that poetry will be high on the list.

Best regards, Richard
