"Seeing Through Poetry" -- Online Poetry Reading

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Have your afternoon tea while you listen to the poetry of Robert Edward Miss, Harriet Shenkman, Diane Schenker, Ellen Devlin, Linda Hillman, and other poets from Westchester.
Email dobref@wlsmail.org for a link to the Zoom event.
Robert Edward Miss, a native of Maryland, has pursued a career in media, philanthropy and the arts. But his life's passion has been poetry and storytelling. His first volume of poetry, "Fever Dreams: A Selection of Poetry," is available on Amazon Kindle. He has performed his work at the annual Writing the Walls of Hudson Valley MOCA. As a boy Rob fished on the Potomac River and roamed the Catoctin Mountains. Those early experiences are reflected in many of his poems.
Rob has resided in Dobbs Ferry since 1986. He is an advocate for special needs artists, founding the Fund for Artists with Disabilities. On behalf of the Fund, Rob curated an exhibit this past April at the Dobbs Ferry Women's Club, entitled Our Art Belongs! Inclusion Collection.
Harriet Shenkman is a local poet whose second chapbook, "THE PRESENT ABANDONED," was published by Finishing Line Press. She has also written poems that have appeared in national and international journals.
