STRATFORD, Conn. – “Not Yet Dead Poets Society” members will read original works Sunday from 3-4 p.m. at the Stratford Library in the Lovell Room.
The group of women, all with professional writing backgrounds and publishing credits, include Gloria Sugarman, Daphne Opdyke, Carol Gursky, Liz Barzda and Irene Backalenick. For the program, the women will share their original poetry, essays and short stories.
The senior members of the “Not Yet Dead Poets Society” are all residents of The Watermark at 3030 Park in Bridgeport. The group began in December 2013, when several former journalists living at the Watermark found each other. Seeking a teacher/mentor for a writers’ workshop, they contacted Dr. Regina Krummel, a retired professor who taught creative writing at Queens College, City University of New York.
The program, special for National Poetry Month, is free and open to the public. No reservations necessary. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. for general seating.
The Stratford Public Library is located at 2203 Main Street.
