Our Cities, Ourselves: Paterson
March 10, 2011
As part of the Scotch Plains public Library’s “Our Cities, Ourselves” series of programs, we will host Maria Mazziotti Gillan on Thursday, April 21st at 7:00 pm. Her topic is “Paterson Poets: Voices of the Silk City.” Gillan, a nationally recognized poet and educator, examines the Paterson-area roots of poets William Carlos Williams, Allen Ginsberg, and their literary heirs. She will discuss the role the city played in their lives and poetry, and will read her own poems and those of others.
