The West Tisbury Library presents the fourth annual Dionis Coffin Riggs Day of Poetry. This special event was established on her birthday of August 6 to annually commemorate not only the work of Ms. Riggs but the work from poets who have been members of the poetry group she established in her home 50 plus years ago and continues to this day, the Cleaveland House Poets. Some members are established poets, others early in their writing life, many have passed on.
At this gathering at the West Tisbury Library, family and friends will join together and read their favorite Dionis Coffin Riggs poems in honor of this remarkable woman. All are welcome to attend.
The reading will include members of Ms. Riggs family as well as the Cleaveland House Poets: Ellie Bates, Francesca Kelly, Chris Legge, Georgia Morris, Dionis Montrowl, Fan Ogilvie, Brooks Robards, Annette Sanrock, Valerie Sonnenthal, Ellen Martin Story and Warren Woessner.
