The Ballston Beach Poets: A Sense of Place

July 30, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for a reading by the Ballston Beach Poets, exploring the theme of “A Sense of Place”—be it physical, emotional, geographical, or something else.
Their work ranges from the edgy to the tender, from the mythic to the everyday, as they explore the ebb & flow of love, belonging, loss, and renewal. The Ballston Beach Poets have been holding annual workshops on Ballston Beach for twelve years, sharing poetry, inspiration, and walks on the beach.
