UPDATED June 2019 Boston Area Poetry Readings

July and August are quiet months for just about everything in Boston, including poetry. So stock up now and avoid the rush later.

Of special note: Joan Houlihan and Kevin Prufer will be reading at Lesley University Monday, June 24 at 7pm. On Friday of that week, I will be one of the graduating students reading at 7pm.
