Stone Soup Poetry meets every Monday from 7-9 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery, now at its new location at 541 Massachusetts Avenue in Central Square Cambridge, Massachusetts. On August 8, Gemma Cooper-Novack returns to us in time to say good bye as she features one last time before leaving Boston for greater fortunes. We wish her well and are pleased to help give her one last sendoff.
