Lit Youngstown hosts poets series

Poets Pamela Anderson and Steven Thomas will be featured at Lit Youngstown’s next First Wednesday Readers Series at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Soap Gallery, 117 S. Champion St., Youngstown.

Anderson is a graduate of the Northeast Ohio Master of Fine Arts, which also awarded her a Bisbee Fellowship. Much of her writing focuses on the Holocaust, with one of her Holocaust poems receiving an AWP Intro Journals award. Thomas is the author of “The Strength of Flowers,” and his poems have been published in The Mill and the Hessler Street Fair Anthology.

The reading will be followed by an open mic hosted by Beth Franklin. Admission is free.
