7/8: Heights poets laureate at Joseph Beth

Posted By on Tue, Jul 7, 2009 at 4:51 PM

50e4/1247000194-gailbellamy.jpgThe Cleveland Heights poet laureate program confers what’s probably the most official such title in the region. Cleveland Heights City Council makes the appointment every other April. This year, it picked Gail Bellamy (pictured) to write and present poetry for public events. Heights Arts has taken the program further, publishing an anthology of poems by its first three poets laureate. Awake at the End (Bottom Dog Press, 2008) collects the work of Meredith Holmes, Lauren Weiss and Mary Weems, who will read and sign copies of the book at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Joseph Beth Books (24519 Cedar Rd., 216.691.7000). Free. — Michael Gill
