On Saturday, April 6th, there will be a celebration of National Poetry Month, the coming of spring and the blooming of a thousand daffodils at Maple Farms Homestead, located at 45 Bozrah Street in Bozrah. The event, which runs from 2 to 4 PM, will feature people of all ages reading their favorite poems by other authors and telling the audience why these poems appeal to them. This part of the reading will be followed by a round-robin reading by a group of Connecticut poets. Refreshments will be served. The entire event should be considered a “family friendly” venue.
Potential poetry readers grade 6 through adult, as well as poets who wish to participate, can find out more details or volunteer by contacting
