The THREAD CITY POETS kicked out the jambs in Julia de Burgos Park in Willimantic on Thursday night 26 July.  The rain threatened but did not arrive during the outdoor reading.  Thread city poets were represented by Edmond Chibeau, Kathleen McElroy, Claudia McGhee, Lisa Sornberger, Barbara LaFlesh & Willa Correnti (aka “Other”).  
Thread City Poets was originally formed by Sandy Taylor, founder of CURBSTONE PRESS.

An “open mic” followed the performance.  Readers at the open mic were Merle Potchinsky, Jeremy Schwartz (who read translations from the Hebrew), Chris Cooke, Christian Sammartino and Yujikay (who read in both Spanish and English).  The season finale will be 23 August with Michael Bradford.  An open mic will follow.  
Poetry in the Park is supported by the Curbstone Foundation and the Town of Willimantic.
