Wednesday, October 21, 2015 – The Poetry Society of NH is very pleased to sponsor an outstanding single feature at Gibson’s Bookstore, 45 South Main Street, Concord, NH! The feature is A. M. Juster. The reading starts at 7pm. Mike will read first and then there will be an Open Mic afterwards. Everyone is invited. Newcomers are encouraged. Parking: we highly recommend the parking garage right behind Red River Cinema. The entrance is down on Storrs Street (which parallels main street). Parking is free after 5pm.
