It’s National Poetry Month! Join us for a poetry night with local poets Julene T. Weaver (Truth Be Bold: Serenading Life & Death in the Age of AIDS), Penelope Scambly Schott (House of the Cadramom Seed), and Christopher Luna (Ghost Town Poetry), for a mixture of new and older poems, and a mixture of styles and themes. This will be a night to remember!
Our monthly writing salon is back! First Saturday of the month from 6-7:30, led by Celeste Gurevich, who will gently guide you on this journey of exploration. This month’s featured poet is Kate Tempest, a young British phenom who should be more well known on our side of the ocean. Come hear some inspiring words, and then write your own! Limited seating.
This month (we hear from 3 local poets on the last Thursday of most months) we’ll hear from Sarah Bokich, whose collection Rocking Chair at the End of the World was recently released, Vargus Pike, whose July Song was published after he wrote a poem a day through July, and Tricia Knoll, whose Broadfork Farm was just published by the local Poetry Box Press.
April is National Poetry Month, and to celebrate, we will be hearing from John Sibley Williams, Shaindel Beers, and Cecelia Hagen. Don’t miss this poetry reading on this of all months! (We host 3 local poets on the last Thursday of every month.)
