Favorite Poem Reading

April 21 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Favorite Poem – Community Poetry Reading

“By making us stop for a moment, poetry gives us an opportunity to think about ourselves as human beings on this planet and what we mean to each other.” Rita Dove

You are invited to read or recite your favorite poem and tell why it is personally meaningful. The only rule is that poems are NOT poems that you, your friends or relatives have written, but ones you have read, perhaps many times, and to which you feel a personal attachment.

This community poetry reading is modeled after former Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky’s “Favorite Poem Project.” Please submit the title and author of the poem you wish to present via email to [email protected] with “favorite poem” in subject box, or mail to David Mook, 896 Ferncliff Road, Poultney, VT 05764. Please submit the poem title and author before April 14, or just plan to come and enjoy hearing your friends and neighbors read their favorite poems!

Community Poetry Reading — All Are Invited! Sunday, April 21 at 2:00.

Location: Stone Valley Arts at Fox Hill (stone church across from Poultney High School) 145 East Main Street. Poultney, VT.
