In tribute to this large body of water, the main artery of Philadelphia, which just barely survived devastation during the January 20th oil train derailment, local poets will come together on April 12th, Philly Poetry Day, to read environmentally themed poetry. We will honor this river running through us, and raise awareness of how our actions affect our habitats. Event is free and open to all. Meet at 3pm on the lawn near the Fairmount Water Works gazebo. Hosted by Hila Ratzabi & Sonia Petruse.|
