Inaugural Poetry in the Park event a big success

WILTON – Pie and Poetry in the Park: a half dozen poets, a dozen pie makers and about two dozen people to enjoy it all outdoors on a beautiful fall afternoon.

The event on The Flat – the space in front of Florence Rideout Elementary School – was sponsored by Wilton Community Center and hosted by Ann Putnam on Oct. 2.

People gathered in circles with their desserts while the poets circulated among them to read their works and discuss poetry in general.

It was agreed by all – including some of whom said they had never before attended such a gathering – that it was a lot of fun and should be done again. Ann Putnam said she would host another in the spring. When it is warm again.

Wilton Community Center is a nonprofit organization established to promote enrichment through cultural, educational, and social activities for the whole family. Find them on the town website.
