Bucks County Community College’s long-running Wordsmiths poetry reading series continues on Friday, April 29, at 7:30 p.m. with an event featuring acclaimed poets Jane Hirshfield and Luray Gross.
The two poets will read at the college’s Zlock Performing Arts Center on the Newtown campus. The reading will be preceded by a VIP reception in the lobby area outside the auditorium, and will be followed by a book signing and dessert reception.
Reserved general admission tickets are free and include access to the book signing and dessert reception. Registration for free tickets is required.
VIP tickets are $15 and include reserved seating and entry to the reception from 6 to 7:20 p.m. outside the auditorium. The reception includes light hors d’oeuvres and two wine, beer or non-alcoholic drinks per person. VIP ticket holders must be 21 and older. IDs will be checked.
Both free and paid tickets can be obtained online at bucks.edu/tickets. Tickets can also be obtained at the Zlock box office outside the auditorium on Tuesdays, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., or on the day of the event. The reading will also be broadcast on Zoom.
