-Julia de Burgos Poetry in the Park series every summer, every 3rd Thursday; Willimantic, CT. May-September. On Poet's Corner. 6:00 pm until dusk. Thriving multi-cultural community event, with talent from all over the region. The CT State Poet Laureate Marilyn Nelson has been a featured speaker, visiting scholars and poets, Latin authors and of course open mic from any member of the public.   -also in Willimantic: Cafemantic on Main Street, a favorite haunt of local artists and poets.
