How can you resist such an attractive combination, and right here in our town? 

Next Sunday, Nov. 15, poets Lauren Camp and Rich Boucher will read some of their poems at the Unquarked Wine Room, 145 Central Square Park. The reading starts at 1 p.m., but the wine room opens at noon. 

A personal note: Lauren is one of my dearest friends. 

Here are the brief biographies of the poets:

Emergency Picnic” reading will be whimsical, and tasty, too. I’ve attended a few of Lauren’s readings; they are always thoughtful and reflective, yet, lively. And I understand that Richard has a great sense of humor. Please come and enjoy a rare audio art.
