“In a Time of Ghosts: We Celebrate the Season” brings us another poetry duet from Rosalie Petrouske and Joyce Benvenuto who will give a virtual reading, Thurs. October 22, 7 p.m. (E.S.T.) On the one hand, it is almost Halloween—this puts us in the mood for twilight images, but also, we shall be wrapped in golden autumn, so this too offers another side of poetry. Join us via Zoom to attend this virtual event. Or you may dial 929 205 6099 and use the meeting ID 891 5302 1203 to attend by telephone.

This event is sponsored by the East Lansing Public Library.
