On Oct. 28 at 5 p.m., the West Tisbury Library presents an online poetry reading with local poet Amarylis Douglas. This live event will meet on Zoom, according to a library announcement.

Ms. Douglas will discuss her newly released book, The Fellowship of the Rain, winner of the 2020 Blue Light Poetry Prize. Email wt_mail@clamsnet.org to receive your Zoom invitation to join.

"(A)midst America's uneven economic recovery, Amarylis Douglas provides a poetry of witness to the epidemic of homelessness," the library announcement reads, in part. "These poems are individual and unforgettable portraits of Americans we don't want to see, and for whom the word recovery hasn't applied."
