Library poetry reading to feature Chris Buczko



SOUTHWEST HARBOR — Chris Buczko will read his own poetry at the Southwest Harbor Public Library on Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 6:30 p.m.

Buczko first read his poems at the library in honor of National Poetry Month with the encouragement of Wes McNair, poet laureate of Maine.

While all of the poems to be shared at this reading have never been published and many never previously read aloud, September’s reading is an opportunity to celebrate a voice that found its cadence and a poet who weaves life’s more sublime moments into a tapestry of honored memories.

Buczko moved to Mount Desert Island from California. Though he has written for the past 10 years, he began sharing his poetry with close friends only last winter.

After the reading, poets of all ages will be invited to share one or two poems of their own. Call the library at 244-7065.
