April 15 7-9PM: LIVING ROOM music and poetry at the Williams House
In the old days, people who played an instrument or wrote poetry or created art of other kinds would gather in their living rooms to share their creative work with each other. The Cary Memorial Library is bringing that tradition back to Wayne in two informal Living Room evenings a month at the library’s Williams House- across the street from the library on the Old Winthrop Road. For each Living Room, a small group of performing artists will take turns presenting about 20 minutes each of song, music, poetry, photography, and other creative expression – without microphones, without a formal “audience”, without an admission charge. Community members are invited to join us to listen. Bring snacks to share if you want to….. Our Living Room evenings will run from 7-9 PM on the first and third Wednesdays of the month. For April only, we will meet on the third Wednesday (April 15). To join a Living Room group as a performer/artist, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
