On these beautiful autumn days as you stroll down Kingsbury Avenue take some time to read and enjoy Poetry in the Park; a series of nine original poems tucked among the front shrubs and near the entrance.
The poems were written by
members of a local poetry group including Ali MacDonald, Donna Veeder, Mary
Stolarcyk and Rebecca Sokol. Poetry in the Park is a project of
Margaret Reaney Memorial Library with funding from the Mohawk Valley Library
System and design work by Jill Fredericks at Sportee Designs. Jill drew upon the deep, rich tones of a photo taken by Heather Battisti that was then turned into a library bookmark several years ago.
A program will be scheduled in the Spring to meet and greet the poets as they share their work and the inspiration behind it.
