The latest “Rozzie Reads Poetry” event on May 15 will include two featured poets and an open mic.

Poet Kenneth Lee is the author of a chapbook, “Cleaning the Attic” (Finishing Line Press, 2010) and two books of poetry, “Sweet Spot” (2012) and “Lake Effect” (2014), both from Antrim House. He has published individual poems in Poetry East, Nimrod, The Lyric, The Comstock Review, and others. Lee is a pathologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and lives in Boston with his wife, Kathleen.

Poet Deborah Pfeiffer is currently working on a “A Week on the Rivers,” a book of poetry and prose inspired by Thoreau’s journey along the Concord and Merrimack rivers in 1839. A participant in the writer’s workshop at the Joiner Center for the Study of War and Social Consequences, the Massachusetts Poetry Festival and the Boston Public Library Series, Pfeiffer has a master’s in English literature from the University of Massachusetts Boston.

Rozzie Reads Poetry will run 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Roslindale House Community Room, 120 Poplar St. Open mic sign-up starts at 7 p.m. The free event is sponsored by the Friends of the Roslindale Branch Library. For more information, email roslindalelibraryfriends@gmail.com.
