Middletown - Andrea Pacione will read her original work at the next Poetry on the Loose event. The program will begin at 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 3 at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 6 Orchard St. (at Main) in Middletown. Admission is by donation. Her presentation will be followed by an open reading during which anyone may participate. Pacione is a poet and artist who has been writing poetry for nearly two decades and reading her impassioned work throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond since 1995. She was a founding member of the peripatetic poetry ensemble Omniscient Omnibus from 1995 to 1997 and served as a co-host of the poetry series at Beatnik Hollow Cafe in Wappingers Falls in 1995 and 1996. More recently, she has read her work at the Florida Public Library and at Noble Coffee Roasters in Campbell Hall. She notes Edgar Allan Poe, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Jim Morrison, and Maya Angelou among her influences. In her poetry, drawings, and paintings, Pacione’s enthusiasm and originality continue to inspire younger poets seeking their voices. The next Poetry on the Loose reading will be April 7. The Poetry on the Loose Reading/Performance series is supported this year with funding from Orange Arts/Orange County Tourism and the County of Orange.
