Retreat at St. Marguerite's

More than 30 poets convened for a retreat at St. Marguerite's in Mendham, NJ, this past weekend.

This retreat, led by by Maria Mazziotti Gillan and Laura Boss, is held twice a year and gives poets the chance to write and share poetry in a beautiful, wooded setting.

On Saturday afternoon, the group enjoyed a viewing of "All That Lies Between Us", the documentary on Maria's life, which was written, produced and directed by Kevin Carey and Mark Hillringhouse, who also attended the retreat. The cherry atop the sundae was Bob Evans' live performance of  the "The Crows of Paterson," the song he wrote for the movie.
