Poetry at Broad Street Books

Featuring Polly Brody!

On the first Tuesday of every month, Broad Street Books hosts a featured poet followed by an open mic. All are welcome to come and read, recite, perform their work!

Polly Brody received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Mount Holyoke College, and after returning to school in mid-life, earned a Masters Degree in Biology from Southern Connecticut State University. A resident of Southbury, Connecticut, she has traveled widely in Europe, East Africa, Australia and South America. As a biologist and experienced field ornithologist, she lectures on animal behavior and has created seminars on that subject. She has been an active advocate for the environment, and while chairing the Newtown Conservation Commission, she helped preserve 790 acres of prime woodland. Polly Brody is the author of an earlier poetry collection entitled Other Nations, has been published in many literary journals, and in 1998 was a finalist in the New Millennium Writings competition. A frequent reader at venues throughout Connecticut, in 1994 she was selected to read at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art and has been a presenting poet in the New England Foundation for the Humanities series, After Frost: Poetry in New England.

Come help us welcome Polly Brody to the store and share some of your own work too!
