8:10pm to 8:30pm: Round Two begins: our poets read again!

8:30 – 9 – You’re up!  Poetry Open Mic Round: If you have a poem you’d like to read aloud, this is the time to do it!

Here’s how it works. Come prepared and bring a poem with you (either original or not). If you want to read but don’t have a poem, we’ll have poems at the ready, inspired by the art exhibit. Each reader will sign up on-site during the event and is limited to no more than 3 minutes at the mic.
