The premise is a casual, coffeehouse style reading with students, teachers and parents (maybe you?) simply getting up and reading a published poem that they love, has inspired them etc.
Parents, if your student is a good reader and has a flair for the dramatic please insist they participate. If YOU love reading poetry or have written some original poetry and would like a venue to read it aloud, I’ll put you on the list to read. If you have a friend or neighbor who loves poetry– get ’em involved. I am also looking for acoustic guitar players to provide music for the evening. Musical renditions of poetry are also welcomed!
Coffee, cocoa, and cookies (check out my alliteration) will be served. I appreciate in advance your kind help in volunteering to do a polished recitation and/or reaching out to friends, RSVP today- Please send me names of anyone interested in participating. Hope to see you cool cats on the 12th! Beanies and berets optional.
