Featuring Poetry Night and Open Mic Reading with 2017 Piedmont Laureate Mimi Herman

Join us for a delightful evening of hands-on poetry. We’ll explore two different types of poetry–ekphrasis (poems about art) and word bowl poetry–with Mimi as your guide, then share our poems in an open mic reading. Poetry night is open to brand-new and experienced poets of all ages. Bring your best friend, your children, your great-aunt Edna, and discover how easy and fun it is to write poetry.

The  Visual Art Exhibit features mixed media by Sheila Hall.
