The Bordentown FP Poetry Project returns on Sunday, March 3, at 2 p.m., at Old City Hall, in Bordentown.

Now in its third year, the poetry project honors Frances “Fanny” Parnell (FP), the 19th-century Irish poet and nationalist who died at her ancestral home in Bordentown in 1882.

This year’s March 3 reading also features several other noted regional and state writers:

Steve Nolan, of Newtown, Pennsylvania, is the author of two volumes of poetry as well as a licensed clinical social worker with 30 years working with the military, including chief of combat stress for Paktika Province in Afghanistan.

Nicole Rollender, Williamstown, is a New Jersey State Council on the Arts Poetry Fellow and author of the poetry collections, “The Luster of Everything I’m Already Forgetting” (Kelsay Books, 2023) and “Louder Than Everything You Love: (Five Oaks Press).

Daniel Weeks is an Eatontown, New Jersey, poet, historian, and musician, whose latest book of poems is “We No More Sang for the Bird: A Poem of World War I” (Ragged Sky Press, 2023).

The program is hosted by coordinator Dan Aubrey, former U.S. 1 editor, playwright, and past New Jersey State Council on the Arts arts-in-education and public arts staff member.

The reading is a presentation of the Old City Hall Restoration Committee, a volunteer group dedicated to providing awareness and funds to restore the historic landmark building.
