Wolfeboro, NH (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
Arts on the Edge has an unblemished record of attracting top-notch artists to Wolfeboro. In bringing poets Robert Cording and Betsy Sholl to town August 22, they are extending that string of successes through another season.
This marks the third annual poetry day sponsored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council and Arts on the Edge at The Pinckney Boathouse at Brewster Academy. This year, organizer Nancy Langfeld has hooked Cording, a professor at College of the Holy Cross, and Sholl, a former Maine Poet Laureate, to give readings and lead workshops. An open mic reading will follow in the evening.
In each of the events they sponsor, Arts on the Edge endeavors to celebrate the spiritual value of artistic creativity, to engage the public in a thoughtful reflection on the role of art in our daily lives. In the past two years, poetry has provided a very direct and articulate means of fostering this engagement. The theme of poetry day this year is Poetry and the Social Conscience.
