As you know, the month of April is set aside as National Poetry Month, a
time to celebrate poets and their written words.
Join local poet Lynne Schmidt as she reads from her award-winning
collection, Dead Dog Poems, which explores the loss of a canine soul mate.
The journey will take the listener through the happy, the terminal
diagnosis, eventual death, and the aftermath of grief after such a loss.
After the reading, there will be time for Q and A, as well as reflection
for anyone who would like to share about their beloved companions.
This program will take place virtually, via Zoom. To register, contact the
Auburn Public Library Reference Desk at 207-333-6640, ext. 4, or email
[log in to unmask] Participants will be emailed a Zoom link
on the day of the program.
Feel free to share this email or the Facebook Event
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me!
