As we all find ways to bob and weave during this pandemic, we know that our connection to one another can feel like the biggest loss and the direst need. To that end, we are offering our Writers in Conversation Series. These online events will bring together writers with a connection to Martha's Vineyard and Featherstone to discuss their craft, what they're working on, and how our current realities have impacted their writing. We hope you'll join the conversation!
All events are Free and offered online, email here for Zoom link (noepe at featherstoneart dot org)
Thursdays evenings in December, 6:30-7:30PM: Thursday, December 3rd: Justen Ahren and Fan Ogilvie Thursday, December 10th: Jorie Graham and Bret Anthony Johnston Thursday, December 17th: Jennifer Smith Turner and Alice Eddy
Virtual Book Launches
Virtual Poetry Reading
Thursday, June 18th at 7:00PM Join us for POETRY IN THE TIME OF QUARANTINE AND PROTEST, a virtual poetry reading presented by Featherstone Center for the Arts, Noepe Center for Literary Arts and PathwaysARTS.
Fifteen Martha's Vineyard poets will be reading original work and poems of inspiration. From A to Zoom, life and death, social distance to social justice, resilience and empowerment, rescue to recovery, fear and joy, elbow bumps to fists, kneeling and Black Lives Matter, unrest to unity - we look forward to sharing their voices with you. The event is free and will take place online via Zoom.
