Great thanks to all who attended Gordon Osing's reading. It was a wonderful evening and the poetry took us from our seats to far off places including India and China! The Society will not be hosting a reader for December because we will be hosting our annual Christmas party where we invite members to read their own work or some of their favorites. Details to come, but save the date of December 11th for that event. Our great gratitude once more for all your support and we look forward to seeing you in December.

Gordon Osing will be reading his poetry for us on November 17th. Gordon grew up in central Illinois and Western Missouri. He taught elementary school in suburban St. Louis and Indepencence, Missouri and High Schools in Chicago and Missouri for ten years before heading back to campus at the University of Arkansas, for an MFA in Poetry in 1973. Inspired by writers such as David Wagoner, Karl Shapiro, Nancy Willard, Gwendolyn Brooks, Howard Nemerov and Richard Wilbur, he discovered that poetry could be a way to keep private matters by making them inot poetic artifacts. A very successful poet both in publications and awards we hope you will join us for an evening of inspiring entertainment. Members only reception with Gordon at 6:30pm and the reading, open to members and non- members begins at 7pm. Admission is $10.00 and readings are held at the Telfair Academy at 121 Barnard St. Savannah GA. please contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
