MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- The Mamaroneck Public Library is celebrating National Poetry month with special guest Amelia B. Winkler, who will be reading from her new collection, "Waking at Night," Sunday.
Winkler is a poet, writer and teacher. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The Jewish Week, North County News and others, and she has published her poetry in The Westchester Review, Big City Lit, Red Owl and more.
''The poems in Waking at Night are intimate, personal narratives that confront the major and minor tribulations of daily life," Kevin Pilkington, and prize-winning poet and novelist, wrote in review . "At times ironic, always inquisitive, each poem will satisfy all who love language laced with wit and insight. And the way the poet unearths these insights and what is at the very core of each poem is humor-- a humor in all its subtleties that adds richness and texture to a world that often is in desperate need of it."
The program is free and takes place in the Community Room. There is a mix-and-mingle from 2 to 2:40 p.m., the reading from 2:40 to 3:15 p.m., and time to talk to Winkler from 3:15 to 4 p.m.
