Betsy Headley of Swanville, poet and photographer, will read from her new book of poetry Saturday, May 12, at 1 p.m. at the Lupine Cottage artist co-op, 7 Old Searsport Ave. off Route 1.

“Something Is Always Left” reflects a life journey using imagery, observation, humor and spirit. Nature is the constant, weaving through the poems as metaphor and reality.

Headley has been active in poetry venues, including open mic readings and the Belfast Poetry Festival. Her work has been published in Off the Coast and the Aurorean. Since 2009, she has been a member of a Belfast poetry group facilitated by Barbaria Maria.

Copies of “Something Is Always Left” will be available for purchase and signing. For more information about the event, call 338-4300.
