Veterans Day readings in Rockland
Rockland — In what has become an annual tradition, there will be a poetry and prose reading on Veterans Day in downtown Rockland. This year’s event will take place Sunday, Nov. 11 beginning 1:30 p.m. at Dowling Walsh Gallery, 365 Main St.
Kendall Merriam created the event two years ago, when he was serving as the city’s inaugural Poet Laureate, and he will host this year’s observance and provide refreshments. Local musician and Vietnam vet Vince Gabriel will provide live music.
Merriam invites any and all to bring a favorite selection to read, original or by someone else; those who wish to listen to others read also will be warmly welcomed. For more information, call Merriam at 594-0947.
