The Andes Roundtable presents poet and storyteller Margot Farrington who will read from “Scanning For Tigers,” her latest poetry collection. These poems chart the territory of love, illness and recovery, obsession, and the struggle for survival, in unexpected ways. Listeners are invited to share and explore how myth, folktale, and the contemporary anecdote provide fuel for the poem-to-be. Farrington has published and performed widely. Hunting Tavern, 7 p.m.
