Eight aspiring young poets from Rye Neck Middle School will read their original works to a live audience at the annual Poetry Live! event at the Emelin Theatre in Mamaroneck on Sunday, April 23 at 2:30 p.m.

This year’s poets include students CJ Alaimo, Sophia Engelen, Jocelyn Greshes, Gabriel Miller, Madeline Mitchell, Dillon Nashelsky, Lillian Schaub and Joshua Willmore. Their poems will also be submitted for publication to the school’s literary magazine, the Panther’s Pen.

Rye Neck Union Free School District is one of five school districts to be represented at the event, which will be taped by the local public access television station, LMC-TV.
