UMM to Host Poets "The Salt Coast Sages"

Machias, Maine – The Maine Writers Series at the University of Maine at Machias will host The Salt Coast Sages on Thursday, February 12, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. in the UMM Art Gallery, located in Powers Hall.

The Salt Coast Sages, a group of local poets from Down East Maine, first came together in a poetry class in the Sunrise Senior College, an education program for learners over the age of fifty at UMM. Members of the group include: Sharon Bray, Donald Crane, Gerald George, Philip Rose, and Grace Sheridan. All have published poetry in literary journals and other periodicals, but each has a different writing style, background, and personality. The Sages will read from their new book, A Rump-Sprung Chair and a One-Eyed Cat: A Collection of Poems by The Salt Coast Sages.
