Gloucester’s Poet Laureate John Ronan To Recite

Yesterday I got a call from Sharon asking me if I thought it would be okay to ask Gloucester’s Poet Laureate John Ronan to recite the poem he wrote in tribute of Matteo Russo and John Orlando at the Gloucester Guerilla Art event today at Cape Ann Community Cinema.

I told her sure if she could get ahold of him and he wanted to do it.  Sharon tells me that in fact he will come and is honored to be a part of it.

We will be showing up early around 12:30 if anyone wants to swing by and hang out before the show (my favorite part).
