Somerville is a city of excitement and diversity in many areas, not least of all in the arts. As poet laureate of the city, with the help and encouragement of the Somerville Arts Council, Lloyd Schwartz invited 21 of Somerville’s most accomplished and beloved poets to each read a poem of their own and a poem they love by someone else, to show the rest of the world that in Somerville we both care deeply about poetry and are also very good at it. The Poem readings will be featured in the Somerville Arts Council YouTube Channel as a Poetry Celebration Playlist. A poem to chance upon, for whenever you need it. 

Release date! Available for viewing any time after 7/13
