Pacem in Terris, the haven of peace made of wood and stone created by Frederick and Claske Franck along the banks of the Wawayanda River, located at 96 Covered Bridge Rd. in Warwick, will present an evening of poetry on Sun., Aug. 27 at 5 p.m. with laureates Laurie Byro and Robert Milby.
The award nominated local poet Laurie Byro has called Pacem in Terris “a living poem in metal as we wander the grounds drawn to water, drawn to sky.” Byro, a West Milford, NJ resident, has been facilitating “Circle of Voices” poetry discussion in New Jersey libraries for 17 years. She is published widely in University presses in the United States and the United Kingdom and is in several anthologies.
Robert Milby, newly appointed Poet Laureate of Orange County, NY, and a resident of Florida, NY, has been reading his poems, from the gutter to the garret in the Hudson Valley and Northeast since March 1995. He has hosted 28 poetry readings series since late 1995 and currently hosts four Hudson Valley poetry series, in Orange, and Ulster County.
