    ROCKPORT — Poets’ Corner and the Rockport Public Library announce four opportunities to celebrate National Poetry Month at the library. Every Thursday afternoon in April, from 4 to 5 p.m., the public is invited to attend readings by the library’s resident poetry workshop members. Refreshments will be provided.

    The first two events will be dedicated to remembering works by Rockport Public Library Poets’ Corner co-founders, George Chappell (on April 6) and Jim Ostheimer (on April 13).

    The last two events, on April 20 and 27, will include readings of poems written by current members of the RPL Poets’ Corner. Members include Sara Eastler, Bill Eberle, Eileen Hugo, Paul McFarland, Jon Potter, Fran Vigeant, and Dana Wildes.

    The group of local poets meets regularly on 1st and 3rd Thursdays at 4:00 p.m. at the Rockport Public Library. New members are always welcome. For more information, please contact the Rockport Public Library or email:
