Thursday, April 29  2021, 6 PM, the Grand Ledge Area District Library will host Michigan poets, including Alison Swan, for their inaugural  “Voices of Michigan Poets & Friends” — a casual virtual gathering open to all. It’s an opportunity for those who read, write, and enjoy poetry, to come together to listen, share and discuss poetry and perhaps their experiences writing poetry.
