Email Maeve Noonan, email@example.com if you are interested in joining this group.
"Northshire Poetry Reading Group"
Whether an anthology or work by an individual poet, each month, our poetry reading group will enjoy a new volume of poetry from which group members will choose a poem to be read aloud and then discuss. Contact Carol Graser at firstname.lastname@example.org to join.

"'WeAreNotTooOldForThis' Reading Group"
