CHESTERVILLE — Chesterville Poetry Night will begin at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30, at the Chesterville Center Union Meeting House, corner of Zion’s Hill and Borough roads.

Chesterville poets will read their own work or the work of past Chesterville authors.

Works read at the 2015 Poetry Night were collected and published in a booklet that has been well received by area residents. Meeting House organizers have announced that a similar book will be published from this year’s poetry readings with permission of the authors.

Poetry Night is just the beginning of a larger Arts Week that will showcase other artistic talents of Chesterville residents. Paintings, drawings, photography and other works will be on display during Poetry Night and again from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 8-9, and by appointment throughout that week. The growing list of local artists displaying their work includes: Margie Austin, Mark Tenney, Anstiss Morrill and Jeffra Hays.

Donations are accepted to support the Meeting House and last year’s An Evening of Poetry Readings will be available for sale.
