Alan Casline reading at the Pine Hollow Arboretum

Poets at the Arboretum, August 13

Dan Wilcox went out to the Pine Hollow Arboretum for a rare (in these pandemic times) in-person poetry open mic.

Just when you thought Zoom was everywhere, another new/old IPR (In-Person Reading) popped up, this a re-birth/re-vamp of the pre-pandemic series the poet Alan Casline ran at the Pine Hollow Arboretum in Slingerlands. In fact, things have changed at Pine Hollow, with the reading today held in the new Visitors Center on Pine Hollow Road. It was originally scheduled to be outside among the trees but it was over 90 degrees so was moved inside to a most-pleasant, spacious room facing windows looking out at the trees.

Poets Tom Corrado, Philomena Moriarty, Julie Lomoe, Paul AmidonTom Bonville, Didi Corrado, Edie Abrams, and host Alan Casline all stepped up to the mic to share their work.
