1st Thursday Poetry featuring Jennifer Hetrick

Meet us at the GoggleWorks for friends, poetry, love, and laughter! Our August featured poet is near and dear to our hearts! The one and only, Jennifer Hetrick will read selected works from her upcoming book, The Labors of our Fingertips. We'll allow anyone to step up to the mic for a short open mic reading. 

Jennifer Hetrick's third and final book from her project called the labors of our fingertips: poems from manufacturing history of berks county will be released late this summer. It is funded in part by grants from Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and Berks Arts Council. She'll be introducing some of the 25 poems from this upcoming volume during the first part of the night. The poems are written from interviews with older seniors in Berks County who worked in mostly long gone factories and mills. Hetrick also teaches a traveling poetry class and takes her workshops into schools and state parks.
