40 years of Midwinter Day: December 22nd, 2018. A solstice-holiday poetry ritual.

For this year’s winter solstice we invite you to join us under the full moon in Cancer, the sign of the home, for a reading of Bernadette Mayer’s classic poem Midwinter Day.

Contemporary poets have a ritual of reading on this day Mayer’s epic ode to the daily ritual divided in six parts: dreams, morning, noontime, afternoon, evening and night.

Please join us! Events are located throughout the country, or make your own! Please help celebrate by sharing on social media: #MidwinterDay #BernadetteMayer #PoetrySolstice.

It’s been a long year. Make your longest night one of renewed celebration of the gifts of love, family, home and the everyday.
