Month of April, What Poets Get, a Free Series of Poetic Entertainments

Sunday, April 1, 2018

The performance of poetry brings out its drama and comedy, its roots and reality, and makes a great short evening or afternoon out. Hearing a poet read their own work reminds you being human is more than a daily grind sandwiched between two commutes. The Humboldt County Library invites you to step off the hamster wheel! Take a chance and listen to a new voice, or come in to hear the new work of an old favorite. Don't miss poet Margot Genger reading from her new trucker memoir, written in prose. There will be memorable spoken word at every one of these events, so bring a friend.
