NEW FOR 2020! Join us for our first poetry event of the year! Bring your poetry and your love of it! Open Mic will begin at 6 pm and the evening will close with a featured poet. January's feature is Lancaster poet, teacher and lecturer, Le Hinton. For ages 14+. No registration needed.
Le Hinton is the author of six poetry collections including, most recently, Sing Silence (Iris G. Press, 2018). His work has been widely published and was nominated for the Pushcart Prize by Pittsburgh Poetry Review for "Interview with Cotton (Part 1/Dreams)" and the Best of the Net by the Summerset Review for "Uses of Cotton (Visibility)." His poem “Epidemic” was one of only four poems chosen to be honored by The Pennsylvania Center for the Book’s Public Poetry Project in 2014, and his poem "No Doubt About It (I Gotta Get Another Hat)" was selected for inclusion in The Best American Poetry 2014.
There will be refreshments available. Doors open at 5:45 pm
Poetry events will be held at Amelia Givin Library every fourth Wednesday.
