Local poet Sally Rhoades will read from her work at the Social Justice Center, 33 Central Ave., Albany on Thursday, September 15, 2022 at 7:30PM.  Sally Rhoades, a poet, playwright and performer, grew up in the foothills of the Adirondacks.

She lives in Guilderland with her husband, Hasan Atalay.

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 October 20 will be Megeen Mulholland; on November 17 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 7:00PM, 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.  For more information about this event contact Dan Wilcox, 518-482-0262; e-mail:
