Wednesday Night Poetry Series

since 1995

History

HISTORY:

How did Wednesday Night Poetry get started?  Two words: Faith Vicinanza. A former Newtown resident, IT Exec, creator of Hanover Press, she began the series around 1994, nurtured it, spent time and money on it, promoted it, got the most interesting poets she could find to read, etc etc  If Faith hadn’t shown up week after week, year after year, there would be no series…

She began the series at a little book store called the Book Review which was in the Sand Hill Plaza on Route 25 in Newtown IN 1994. The series rapidly out-grew the Book Review, which had a tiny little cafe area, and Faith moved it to Doctor Java’s Caffeine Emporium on Greenwood Ave. in Bethel, and through MANY other venues to its current home.
