Book Celebration Tonight in Montclair

Maria and Mark at the November 30 book party at Passaic County Community College

On Thursday, December 7, Maria Mazziotti Gillan, Mark Hillringhouse and Laura Boss will be the featured poets at a Publications Celebration as part of the Montclair Monthly Poetry Series.

The event will be held at 7 pm at the Montclair Public Library (Auditorium), 50 South Fullerton Avenue, Montclair, NJ. These readings are free and open to the public.

Paterson Light and Shadow (Serving House Books, 2017) tells stories in poetry and photography about Paterson, New Jersey, with poems by Maria Mazziotti Gillan, and fine art photos by Mark Hillringhouse, who together have spent a lifetime growing up, living and working in and around one of America’s most important historic industrial cities.

Also celebrating a new book at the event will be Laura Boss whose poetry collection, The Best Lover, (New York Quarterly Books, 2017) continues her signature style of audacious, irreverent, ironic narrative poems.
