That Poetry Reading Series
We will have two featured readers: Leah Sewell and Gabriela Lemmons. When our featured readers have concluded, we will break for about five minutes and will then have an open mic for anyone who wishes to share creative work. Readers should prepare for five minutes (2-3 poems). Arrive early to sign up.

Come one and all to hear some stirring words on a cold, winter's night.
