Third Thursday Poetry Night Featuring Megeen R. Mulholland
Local poet Megeen R. Mulholland will read from her work at the Social Justice Center, 33 Central Ave., Albany on Thursday, October 20, 2022, at 7:30 PM.
Megeen R. Mulholland received her Ph.D. from the University at Albany.

She is the author of two volumes of poetry, Orbit and Crossing the Divide, both available from Finishing Line Press and all booksellers.
The Third Thursday Poetry Night has been at the Social Justice Center since July 2006, but due to the Coronavirus pandemic, as well as needed structural repairs at the Center, the event was not held from early 2020 until January 2022. We are pleased to be back once again. The featured reader on November 17 will be Jan Tramontano; & on December 17 Lâle Davidson.
A reading by a local or regional poet is held each Third Thursday at the Social Justice Center. The event includes an open mic for audience members to read. Sign-up starts at 7:00 PM, with the reading beginning at 7:30. The host of the readings is Albany poet and photographer Dan Wilcox. The suggested donation is $5.00, which helps support this and other poetry programs of the Poetry Motel Foundation, and the work of the Social Justice Center.
