Cookbook Club

Tuesday Apr 4, 2017, 6:30 p.m.

Browse the featured cookbook at the front desk and sign up for the recipe you’d like to make. Then bring a batch of your selected dish to share, potluck style, during a round table discussion and tasting. Paper plates, napkins, and utensils will be provided by the library.

If your recipe doesn't work out, come anyway! We'd like to hear about your experiences with the recipe, what worked, what didn't, and why. That's what it's all about.

Sunday Poetry Salon

Sunday Apr 30, 2017, 2 p.m.

The Dennis P. McHugh Piermont Public Library presents a reading by three local poets: Michael Collins, Claudine Nash and Lisa Rhodes-Ryabchich. Members of the audience will have an opportunity to read original work during an open mic session after the presentation by our featured poets.

Michael Collins’ poems have received Pushcart Prize nominations and have appeared in more than 50 journals and magazines, including Grist, Kenning Journal, Pank, and Smartish Pace. His first chapbook, How to Sing when People Cut off your Head and Leave it Floating in the Water, won the Exact Change Express Chapbook Contest in 2014. A full-length collection, Psalmandala, was published later that year, and a second chapbook, Harbor Mandala, appeared in 2015. Visit http://www.notthatmichaelcollins.com

Claudine Nash’s books include Parts per Trillion (Aldrich Press, 2016) and The Problem with Loving Ghosts (Finishing Line Press, 2014). She also co-edited the book In So Many Words: A Collection of Interviews and Poems from Today’s Poets with Adam Levon Brown (Madness Muse Press, 2016). Her poems have won prizes from Avalon Literary Review, Eye on Life Magazine, The Song Is… and Lady Chaos Press and have appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies including Cloudbank, Asimov’s Science Fiction, StarLine, Yellow Chair Review, The Westchester Review, Foliate Oak Literary Magazine, Haight Ashbury Literary Journal, and The MOON magazine amongst others.
