This month’s featured readers are George Washington High School Students:
Several students from my poetry class will share their work this month at the library. I hesitate to announce their names prior to the reading because their social schedules are quite tenuous! I hope the weather holds up for the reading as well! Bring your teens for an evening with young minds wish fresh perspectives.
An open mic will follow! For directions, or if you have any questions, my number is 215.968.4843. I’m looking forward to seeing you.
We are no longer meeting at Applebee’s for dinner. However, if you are interested in meeting for dinner, let me know. I can post it on Facebook and you can network with each other! Please note the time change of the reading! Thank you!
