Poets share work at reading

Poets Grace Curtis of Dayton and Laura Grace Weldon of Litchfield will read from their work at Lit Youngstown next First Wednesday Reading Series event.

Curtis is the author of three collections of poetry, “Everything Gets Old,” “The Shape of a Box” and “The Surly Bonds of Earth.” Her prose and poetry can be found in numerous journals.

Weldon has two poetry collections, “Blackbird” and “Tending.” An excerpt of her poem “Why the Window Washer Reads Poetry” is stamped in the sidewalk on Walnut Street in downtown Youngstown as part of Lit Youngstown’s Words Made Visible Sidewalk Project.

The reading co-hosted by Barbara Sabol starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday and will be followed by an open mic. The event can be livestreamed on Lit Youngstown’s Facebook page. Those who want to participate in the open mic can register at lityoungstown.org for a link to the Zoom room.
