The Red Wheelbarrow poets are all reading from their latest book, “The Red Wheelbarrow Volume #6,” this Saturday, November 16th at Tachair Bookshoppe (260 Newark Ave. by Monmouth Ave.) at 4pm. Literature lovers, you won’t want to miss this event.
The Red Wheelbarrow group meets for writing workshops in Rutherford, the hometown of William Carlos Williams (author of “The Red Wheelbarrow”), and periodically publish an anthology of their collective work. After the poetry reading, there will be a book signing and open-mic session.
“Tachair,” Jersey City’s only independent bookstore, derived its name from a Scottish-Gaelic word meaning “to meet.” The family-owned business uses their space to encourage education and community gatherings over conversation, creativity and the arts. They sell not only new and used books, as well as art from local artists. Tachair also has a cafe to promote the connectivity among people of all ages and walks of life that co-exist in our diverse city.
