Saturday: Poets Club of Chicago

Sat, Nov 15
2:30p – 3:30pm

Sulzer Regional Library,
4455 N. Lincoln Ave

Features include Jan Ball, Nancy Carrigan, Maureen Flannery, Pat Gangas, Glenna Holloway, Carol Kanter, Donna Pucciani, Tom Roby and other Chicago poets over the age of 50. There will also be an open mic. The format for the event is that each poet chooses a poem that is related somehow to the previous poem read, whether it be by subject matter, writing style, an image or theme. This way of formatting a poetry reading is something that has been done throughout the ages and throughout the world. In its most recent incarnation, it is being called the Poetry Wheel. The event should prove to be a worthwhile afternoon of literate poetry.
