April is National Poetry Month, when the legacy and awareness of the importance of poetry in our lives is highlighted in schools and institutions everywhere. The Copake Grange will mark the culmination of this important literary celebration by inviting community members of all ages to take the stage and read an original or favorite selection. Novices and experienced enthusiasts of the art of poetry are invited to the Grange theater to read an original poem they may have been inspired to write, share a selection from their favorite poet or anthology, or simply listen and reflect as the poetic voices of others come alive.
Copake resident, singer-songwriter and poet Slink Moss and Great Barrington poet Janet Hutchinson will preside over this free event, which requires no advance reservations.
Friday, May 3, 2019 / 6pm – 8pm
