EAC will host a Poetry & Pie night on Friday, September 3 at 7 pm. The event will feature delicious hand pies—blueberry, raspberry and cherry—made that morning by the Pie Ladies of Pembroke and an open mic setting for sharing poetry with the gathering, whether your own original work or a favorite selection of another poet. Those who’d just like to listen to the readings while eating pie are also very welcome!

A $7 ticket includes refreshments; space is limited. Please email alison@eastportartscenter.org to reserve your spot.


Popular bakers the Pie Ladies have been selling their treats at farmers’ markets in Calais and Lubec this summer, and are accepting monthly preorders for pickup in Pembroke via email to pieladiesbakery@gmail.com.

Check out these Poetry & Pie posts to read about some of the online iterations of this event; we’re pleased to offer an ‘in person’ version to usher in cooler fall days.
