"These poems are about work and workers, their ambitions and frustrations: blue, white, and pink collar workers; construction workers, factory workers, workers in offices, academies, kitchens. They are about the employed and the unemployed; the exploited, and the marginalized. They are about hope and despair, resilience and endurance." (from the publisher)
 
Copies of the book will be available for sale after the reading, but no purchase is necessary to attend this free event. Light refreshments will be served.
 
Sponsored by the Friends of the Holmes Public Library.

agate bank thrown on the wheelMaster potter Rick Hamelin presents Spouting Off! Teapots from Around the World, a pottery demonstration, at the Holmes Public Library on Saturday, May 9, 11 a.m. Watch as these teapots take shape and hear the history of their form and function: the English "brown Betty", an Asian teapot made from one piece of clay, a Lebanese two-walled tea pot, and a unique, mythological-form tea pot. This presentation by the Pied Potter, Rick Hamelin, is supported by a grant from the Halifax Cultural Council, a local agency funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
The pottery demonstration will be followed by a light tea to close out our week-long Books in Bloom event and to recognize our library volunteers!
