Plan to attend the 25th Annual Fairhaven Plant & Tree Sale to shop local vendors of native and specialty plants, from bedding plants to trees, at great prices to get an early start on your 2013 gardening. Along with expert advice from participating vendors, gardeners will find perennials, ornamentals, trees, native plants, herbs, vegetable starts, blueberries, bamboo, garden décor, and much more. The event is sponsored by and is a fundraiser for the Fairhaven Neighbors group. The plant sale will take place in the parking lot on Mill Avenue, across from the Fairhaven Village Green, adjacent to the South Bay Trail. For information (including a full list of vendors) or to volunteer to help, visit www.facebook.com/FairhavenPlantAndTreeSale or contact Thom Prichard at 671-5517 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or Lheisey@comcast.net.
EVENT CANCELED: KATE GREENSTREET, YOUNG TAMBLING WITH EMILY KENDAL FREY, THE GRIEF PERFORMANCE---POETRY
Start: 7:00 pm
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED. WE HOPE TO RESCHEDULE THIS FALL! Join Kate Greenstreet and Emily Kendal Frey as the read at Village Books from their new collections of poetry. In Kate Greenstreet's new book, Young Tambling, she explores what it means to be human, to need to feel, to make art. Memory, in this book of “experimental memoir,” works something like the narrative tactics of a traditional ballad, “alternate leaping and lingering,” in one formulation. In Young Tambling, a life’s meaning is born of its poet’s song, and a memory cannot reveal its truth until it finds its ballad. Greenstreet has also published The Last 4 Things, and her poetry can be found in Colorado Review, Boston Review, Volt, Fence, Chicago Review, and other journals. Emily Kendal Frey's new book, The Grief Performance, won the 2012 Norma Farber Award from the Poetry Society of America. She writes about grief and dread in a unique and artful light. Frey is the author of the chapbooks Airport, Frances, and The New Planet, as well as three chapbook collaborations. She lives in Portland, Oregon. Village Books will soon carry copies of Kate and Emily's books.
