STRATFORD, Conn. -- The Stratford Library has rescheduled its “Not Yet Dead Poets Society” for a special program of original writings to Sunday at 3 p.m.

The program, originally slated for April, is free and open to the public.

For the library 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 Regina Krummel, a retired professor who had taught creative writing at Queens College, City University of New York.

The group of women, all with professional writing backgrounds and publishing credits, are Gloria Sugarman, Daphne Opdyke, Carol Gursky, Liz Barzda and Irene Backalenick.

The “Not Yet Dead Poets Society” will be held from 3-4 p.m. in the Lovell Room of the Stratford Library.

No reservations are necessary. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. for general seating.

For further information, call the library’s public relations and programming office at 203-385-4162 or click here .

The Stratford Library is at 2203 Main St.
