MIDCOAST — The Poets Corner presents “Poems of the Night Sky” Sunday, Jan. 8, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. featuring filmmaker Tara Roberts Zabriskie, who has documented Maine’s efforts to save the stars in her film “Defending the Dark.” A trailer from her film will be shown and participants will also hear from Nancy Hathaway, president of Dark Sky Maine.

Author and poet Midge Goldberg will share selections from her recent released anthology “Outer Space, 100 Poems,” published by Cambridge University Press. John Paul Caponigro, Audrey Le and Meg Weston will read poems from this anthology as well as some of their own work as part of this presentation designed to reveal the magic of Maine’s winter skies — no matter where you are in the world.
