Lunar Walk Poetry Series Feature

The Lunar Walk Poetry Series is proud to present the poets Henry Mills and Diannely Antigua! Join us in the back room of Bedlam Bar (the room with the disco balls behind the velvet curtains). Feel free to grab a drink on the way in - the bartender Cody will open Bedlam and make drinks just for us. Tip him well! 

We highly advise staying for the dancing after.

She received her B.A. in English from the University of Massachusetts Lowell where she won the Jack Kerouac Creative Writing Scholarship.
