Gettysburg Area Poets

Many thanks to everyone who came out to the Writers’ Showcase the other night at The Vintage. We had a great turnout, and many thanks to Bryne, Paul, Charlotte, Eric, and Bernadette, our featured readers. They all did an excellent job. This weekend, there’s another literary event going on in Northeastern, Pennsylvania. Four poets from the Gettysburg area will read at the Library Express Saturday at 3 p.m. This event is free, and these poets are well worth checking out.

Here is information about the event from the press release:

Four Gettysburg area poets will read at the Library Express in the Steamtown Mall on Saturday, July 19 at 3 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. The featured poets include Martin Malone, Katy Giebenhain, Dana Larkin Sauers, and Gary Ciocco.

Malone teaches at Mount Saint Mary’s University. His poems have appeared in Dream International Quarterly, Lighted Corners, The Monocacy Valley Review, Scribble and the Seminary Ridge Review.
