How we mark National Poetry Month

In honor of National Poetry Month, Finger Lakes Community College will hold its 9th Annual Faculty and Staff Reading on Thursday, April 28, at 7 p.m.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the FLCC Honors House, 4340 Lakeshore Drive at the corner with Routes 5 and 20 in Canandaigua. Parking is available at the Honors House.
