Poetry Festivals Worldwide: This weekend, the Dodge

This Thursday, September 28th, the bi-annual Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival begins, and will last through Sunday afternoon. The organizers have planned a star-studded line-up of poets for 20,000 poetry fans, music, educational programs, food, the works, all for a bargain price of about $1 Million (to the foundation--tickets are less). It will be held at Waterloo Village in Byram Township in New Jersey.

Here is the detailed program, in pdf:

Oops--wrong blogger login for that last post.

Hi January,

So, you're headed for the Dodge tomorrow. I was there two years ago, on Sunday, and hope to make it this coming Sunday. Maybe I'll recognize you.

Thanks for stopping in. I'll be exploring your blog too, and need to get a link up to it. Looks good.



Hi Lisa,

I see you're probably on your way there as I write this. I hope to meet up with you Sunday--if I can get there before you head back here to New England.

Great to see you here in blogsville, maybe in realsville too.

Hey Rus,

Another one for your list: (http://www.fiptr.com/index_E.html). I've never been, but it's about 90 minutes north-east down the St. Lawrence from Montreal.

Hi Peter,

Thanks very much. I've just added it.

Thanks, Bud, from me, too. I'm looking at the Palm Beach Festival.

Hi Carol,

Let me know how it goes. By the way, my oldest son is living in West Palm Beach now. He's teaching in Florida.
