True beauty is never fleeting, which is why poetry
demands thoughtful reading - as well as the gift of time.[i]
On Saturday, September 21 at 1 pm the Massanutten Regional Library’s Main Branch is offering a public program featuring Sofia Starnes, the current Poet Laureate of Virginia. Virginians and the Commonwealth, one of a few states to so honor poets, have a long history of providing encouragement, community, and support for poets and for those who enjoy reading poetry. The umbrella for local poets and poetry readers is the Poetry Society of Virginia, established in 1923 and in its 90th year.
