Northeast Storytellers: A Special St. Valentine’s Reading

When: Fri., Feb. 14, 3-4:30 p.m. 2020

Love has inspired great works of literature throughout history. Who could resist an expression of everlasting affection such as William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116? “Love’s not time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks / Within his bending sickle’s compass come / Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks / But bears it out even to the edge of doom,” it reads. The Northeast Storytellers, a group of readers and writers who meet monthly in St. Johnsbury, honor the patron saint of lovers with a sixth annual Valentine’s Day reading. Group members and guests gather to read and recite love-themed poetry and prose.

Price: Free; preregister to participate.
