Program Description

Event Details

Join us in our Library Meeting Room for an April reading by two Long Island literary figures.

Fran Castan was named The Walt Whitman Birthplace Association’s Long Island Poet of the Year 2013;  she has also received The U.K.’s 2021 Hippocrates Prize for Poetry and Medicine and The Poetry Society of America’s Lucille Medwick Award, among other honors.

Canio Pavone is the founding owner of “Canio’s Books,” the fabled bookstore in Sag Harbor.  From the first reading by Nelson Algren in 1980 to the annual marathon reading of Moby Dick, Canio’s Books has been a literary center for eminent as well as emerging artists.

Canio will be reading his own translations of the Italian poet Lalla Romano and excerpts from his memoir in progress.
