Reading by Poet Charles Coe

Presented by Arts Arlington and Robbins Library at Arlington Town Hall, Arlington MA

Feb 27 2021
Reading by Poet Charles Coe

A poetry reading and conversation with Charles Coe — a keen and compassionate observer, and a master storyteller.

Known for his powerful readings and unusually warm and compassionate voice, Charles Coe's poems speak to the heart and mind as well as the ear. He combines subjects as diverse as Afro-American history, myth, jazz, and family as well as surprising observations of those unexpected moments of joy to be found in a work-a-day city. Presented by Arlington Commission for Arts and Culture in collaboration with Robbins Library and Arlington's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Division. You can read more
