Third Thursday Poetry Night featuring Therese Broderick
Poet Therese Broderick will read from her work at the Social Justice Center, 33 Central Ave., Albany on Thursday, February 17, 2022 at 7:30PM. Therese says that she treasures the insight of Seamus Heaney that poetry is “language in orbit.” Her personal life is guided by this precept: “practice unconditional attention.”
The Third Thursday Poetry Night has been at the Social Justice Center since July 2006, but due to the Corona virus pandemic, as well as needed structural repairs at the Center, the event has not taken place since February 2020. We are pleased to be back once again. The featured poet on March 17 will be Judith Prest; and on April 21 David Graham.
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.
