WOLFEBORO – Fall has taken its time getting here, but the winter holidays will certainly arrive on time. And that means that the Poets in the Attic will be hibernating for two months after their October reading on Thursday, Oct 26.
“Poets and fans had better get on down to the Country Bookseller next week,” said host Gordon Lang. “It’s a long three months between our next two readings.”
Traditionally, the Poets in the Attic don’t meet in November and December to allow members to celebrate the holidays with their families.
“I’m looking forward to one last big blowout before we button up our satchels,” Lang said. “Last month we had some young folks in and they brought a whole new level of energy. It’s good to spice things up “
As always, there are no featured performers at Poets in the Attic readings. This gives each poet and musician more opportunities to read or play. Typically Wolfeboro Community Television records the first hour for broadcast later on.
“It’s wide open. Anybody can come and perform,” Lang said. “Musicians are always welcome. This summer Jim McKenna brought his uilleann pipes—the Irish bagpipes—up to Castle in the Clouds both times we were up there. It was glorious!”
The Poets in the Attic invite all visitors to join their reading on Thursday, October 26, from 7 to 9, at The Country Bookseller, in Wolfeboro. Free off-street parking right next to the store is available via Mill Street.
