Join us Sunday, September 30 at 2:00 PM  for a celebration of poetry with two award winning local authors, Lynne Viti & Heather Bryant.

Lynne Viti will be reading selections from The Glamorganshire Bible.

Heather Bryant will be reading selections from James Joyce’s Water Closet.

Books will be available for purchase & signing following the reading.


Lynne Viti’s poems transport us to another place and time, into the beauty and desperation of a western Maryland railroad town a century ago. She mends the “broken kaleidoscope” of memory through the power of her own imagination, channeling the voice of “our grandma, young and wild” who became a wife and mother far too soon. The story grips us, and words rend our hearts as Viti chronicles three generations of women seeking love, escape, freedom, and connections with one another.

“Heather Corbally Bryant’s latest collection of poems draws on the energies of travelogue, memoir, and family diary, to convey what the author calls “the particularity of the inconsequential.” The book captures the sense of discovery felt by the author in a foreign country, even when that country, as here, seems both strange and familiar at once. In these poems we understand the thrill and dislocation of encounter with a new landscape, and the language of the poems conveys all that warmly and affectionately, with a probing, delicate accuracy.”
