Come play a “game” of Poetry Karaoke with the Mused Organization. Speakers will bring their favorite poem and read live from the stage while a musician plays behind them. Contemporary, local and classic poems will be at the ready for the hungry participants.
Why is it important to read poetry? Thoreau read Wordsworth’s new ideas about nature, then Muir read Thoreau, and then Teddy Roosevelt read Muir and — because of all that — the US now has national parks. It took a century, but it happened. Where the pollen from these poems will blossom, we can only wait and see.
This evening will also include a Poetry Slam hosted by Living Arts! Rules and Regulations will be posted soon. Prizes range from $100 for third prize to $400 for first prize.
