Poetry for Peace
Readings are held on Mondays at 4:30 p.m., unless noted otherwise.

    • Dates to be announced

Please come to read a poem you've written, a poem by a favorite poet, or just to listen to poems on a different theme. And bring your friends! You are welcome to read poems in languages other than English, but you should provide an English translation as well. Because we believe the empathetic community created by sharing ANY kind of poetry can lead to peace and social justice, we welcome all poems, not just those that touch directly on those themes.
