Poet performer comes to Milford Library

Andy Weil’s poetry readings are not what most people think a poetry reading would be like. Performance poet, Andy Weil, will bring his “Poetry With A Touch Of Mid-life Insanity” program to the Milford Public Library on April 28, at 7 p.m.

The program is free.

Weil’s passion for humor and humanity shines during energetic, creative communications via words, body language and drums. His programs are always changing, and he often writes poetry based on current events.

Weil is a published performance poet, and member of The Faxon Poets of West Hartford.

Weil travels throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts, reading and performing at libraries, schools, senior centers, assisted-living facilities, special functions and fund-raisers. He also is the founder and facilitator of “Senior Voices — Expressing Yourself Through Poetry,” which he started in 2009. Through “Senior Voices,” Weil works with over 200 seniors from ages 70 to 103, bringing the poetry writing process to those who have never experienced the therapeutic powers of writing.

In 2012, Weil won a national award from The Assisted Living Federation of America, based in Alexandria, VA., for his Senior Voices program.

The program is funded by the Friends of Milford Library. No reservations are required.
