Residents invited to ‘Share the Love’ at library event

Join the North Haven Memorial Library for a “Share the Love” poetry event with the town's Poet Laureate, Gabriella Brand, Saturday, Feb. 25 at 2 p.m. Do you know someone who makes life better in North Haven? Show them some love! It could be people at your workplace, in your school, or on your street. It could be a thoughtful neighbor or a volunteer firefighter.

Write a short poem about this person and why you appreciate them. Then invite them to the library to "receive" your poem on Feb. 25. You may read the poem yourself or ask someone else to read it. A selection of poems will be chosen to be read publicly and others will be displayed.

“Share the Love” is open to all. Email a copy of the poem to by Saturday, Feb. 18. Include your name and the name of the person you wish to honor. 

Gabriella Brand is available to help with poem-writing and spoken delivery.
