Online Event: Second Annual Dionis Coffin Riggs Day of Poetry

Second Annual Dionis Coffin Riggs Day of Poetry

On Thursday, August 6 at 5pm, the West Tisbury Library presents the second annual Dionis Coffin Riggs Day of Poetry. This event will meet virtually on Zoom. This special event was established on her birthday of August 6th to annually commemorate not only the work of Ms. Riggs but the work from poets who have been members of the poetry group she established in her home 50 plus years ago and continues to this day, the Cleaveland House Poets. Some members are established poets, others early in their writing life, many have passed on. At this virtual gathering, family and friends will join together and read their favorite Dionis Coffin Riggs poems in honor of this remarkable woman. All are welcome to attend.

This year’s event will feature readings by family members Dionis Montrowl and Cynthia Riggs, as well as Cleaveland House Poets Eleanor Bates, Peter Lederman, Christopher Legge, Georgia Morris, Arnie Reisman, Brooks Robards, Fan Ogilvie, Susan Puciul, Annette Sandrock, Valerie Sonnenthal, Ellen Story, and Warren Woessner.

Please contact wt_mail@clamsnet.org to receive the Zoom invitation. Free and open to the public.
