A Memorial Tribute
Poetry of Dick Allen, Connecticut Poet Laureate, 2010 – 2015
Dick Allen of Trumbull, a poet, essayist, and educator was scheduled to read at the March Second Thursday Poetry Series reading. Sadly, he suffered a fatal heart attack on Christmas day at the age of 78.
In the spirit of gratitude and celebration of his life and his poetry, we are planning a reading of his poetry, with each member of the Guilford Poets Guild reading his/her favorite poems.
Also, in that spirit, we are offering to attendees three door prizes of one of his poetry books: Present Vanishing; The Day Before; Ode to the Cold War
Guilford Poets Guild has had a long history with Dick Allen, including featuring him at past readings and inviting him to facilitate a poetry workshop for its members. He will be sorely missed.
Open mic session at 6:30 pm. Refreshments served.
