A POETRY READING IN THE ROUND
The Carrboro Poets Council is bringing back a treasured tradition with a new necessary twist: Poetry in the Virtual Round. While we won’t be able to sit in a circle at Town Hall, or read poems before the bands play, we will be able to read and celebrate poems on Zoom. Here is how it will work:
Sunday, May 2, 2021 2:00pm-3:00pm Virtually via Zoom
Come celebrate poetry in an easy-going atmosphere - no podiums, no experience necessary! This is an open reading - all are welcome. Come to read your own work, come to share a poem you love by someone else, come to listen only. Leave (quietly, respectfully) whenever you wish. Readers will read a single SHORT poem (30 lines or less) at a time before we give our attention to the next in the circle. We will rinse and repeat as time allows.
The “Reading in the Round” is hosted by the Carrboro Poets Council: Fred Joiner (Current Carrboro Poet Laureate), Gary Phillips, Gideon Young, Abigail Browning, Maura High, Jay Bryan, Paul Jones, and Susan Spalt.
We will be sharing a special presentation of 'Storytime with Mr. Keith'. This program is made possible through our partnership with the Orange County Public Library.
