Fine Finish for Featherstone Festival

Featherstone’s Festival of Poetry’s very successful summer season is wrapping up with a reading by Naomi Shihab Nye, an award-winning Palestinian-American poet whose works have garnered multiple awards over the years. Fellow poet William Stafford said of Ms. Nye, “Her poems combine transcendent liveliness and sparkle along with warmth and human insight. She is a champion of the literature of encouragement and heart. Reading her work enhances life.”

The reading will be held at 6:30 p.m. under the summer tent at Featherstone Center for the Arts on Barnes Road in Oak Bluffs, with an entry fee of $10. For details, call 508-693-1850.
