On September 8, 2016, West Bay Poets held a book signing at Barrington Books Retold in Garden City at 2:00 p.m. The event was a celebration of their debut collection Thursdays at 2: Poems to Gladden the Heart, which was recently-published by Rose Hall Media Company.
In attendance were West Bay staff, friends, family, board and community members. West Bay Poets Melissa Angilly, James Boucher, Gloria Bray, and Corinne Charlette shared their poetry and autographed copies for the guests who were present. It was truly a special afternoon for it marked the culmination of a dream coming to fruition.
Thursdays at 2 showcases both collaborative and individual poems written by West Bay Poets, famous authors, and members of Ocean State Poets—a non-profit whose mission is to “give voice through the reading, sharing and writing of poetry.” In addition, the book is filled with creative prompts, suggestions and ideas for inspiring collaborative works.
