Description: For Readers and Listeners of Poetry

This is the 1st gathering for the Power of Poetry Reading Series. The POPRS is polyglot—poems may be read in English, Spanish, or any other language. The theory is that poetry is a language.

Plan for the 1st gathering: A microphone will be on a stand at one end of the recital room. Chairs will be placed in rows facing the microphone. The officers of the group will have five to ten minutes each to say something and read a poem or two. A guest reader will read for about twenty minutes, and then attendees who want to read may participate in open mike. A sign-in sheet will be available for those who want to read. Each person who makes it on the sign-in sheet will have five to ten minutes to read. Books written by the guest reader will be available for sale.

Members of the audience do not have to participate in open mike. In fact, we hope those who attend feel free to simply sit back, listen, and enjoy the spoken word.

A café is adjacent to the recital room, where refreshments will be available before, during, and after the reading.

The themes for this reading will be:

We are past mid-winter

Spring is almost upon us

Meteor showers

The new moon
