Flyleaf Second Thursday Poetry Series & Open Mic feat. David Radavich and Becky Gould Gibson
Thursday 6/13, 7 pm to 8:30 pm (informal get-together next door at The Root Cellar, 6 p.m.)
Featured poets will each read for approximately 20 minutes and, after a short break for the readers to sign books, there will be a poetry open mic. Please sign up to read no later than 6:45 pm. Each open mic reader will be limited to no more than a page of poetry. At 6 pm, before the reading begins, there will be an informal get-together next door at the Root Cellar. Hope to see you there!
