Please join Berks Bards in welcoming Edwin Romond back to the GoggleWorks for a poetry reading.

Edwin Romond is the author of eight collections of poetry
and has been awarded fellowships from
the National Endowment for the Arts and from both the New Jersey and
Pennsylvania State Councils on the Arts. His work has twice been featured on
NPR’s The Writer’s Almanac and he is the recipient of the 2013 New
Jersey Poetry Prize for his poem, “Champion.” He wrote the book, music, and
lyrics for two musical plays, Robin Hood and A Family Life, that were
produced at New Jersey community theaters and Spitball Magazine
recently published his first short story. His new poetry collection, Home
Team: Poems about Baseball
, will be released in spring of 2016.
He was a public school teacher and counselor for 32 years
and now works in the poetry program of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation. Edwin
Romond lives in Wind Gap, PA with his wife, Mary, their son, Liam, and their
dog, “Oscar.”

This event is free and open to the public. It is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts through a grant that is administered locally by the Berks Arts Council.
