And have you changed your life?

The Arts Cafe Mystic is pleased to announce its final outdoor performance on Saturday, November 14 at 2:00 pm with poets Jeffrey Harrison and Barbara Hill.  Harrison, a long-time friend of the Arts Cafe, will read from his newly released collection Between Lakes (September, 2020). Local poet Barbara Hill, who hails from Pawcatuck, will read from her newly published chapbook A Few Sharp And Glamorous Words. Our musical guests are Greg Piccolo (on saxophone) and Bill Morrison (on bass violin), formerly from Roomful of Blues. Please join us outside on the patio by the river for a beautiful afternoon.

The event will be outside on the back patio of The Mystic Museum of Art, 9 Water Street, Mystic, CT.

Please enjoy The Arts Cafe Mystic's presentation of "Youth Will Be Served" in August.  To encourage the enjoyment and honor the importance of the arts during these strange and challenging times, the event was free to the public, and we offer it to you, as a celebration of poetry, music, and our extraordinary student Poets Laureate. Please consider making a donation to The Arts Cafe Mystic to support our efforts to create and provide these most meaningful and necessary events.
