Rose Garden Reading Series


Held annually in conjunction with 'Rose Sunday' at Elizabeth Park, this June event features poetry readings by Connecticut-based poets. Often our scholarship award winner will give a brief reading as well. For many years Hugh Ogden coordinated this event and it is in his memory that we carry on.
