Poetry is alive and well in Michigan! Come celebrate with us! The Downriver Poets & Playwrights in association with our cultural partner, the Downriver Council for the Arts (DCA), are hosting a poetry reading night at the DCA. Admission is free and the public is welcome. Light refreshments served.
The theme of our Reading this year is “National Poetry Month, a Celebration of Michigan Poets” and will feature poetry from authors from our very own state. Yes! Poetry is Alive and Well in Michigan! Some of the poetry selections will be from the recently published book, “Water Music, The Great Lakes State Poetry Anthology,” a collection of poems by the Poetry Society of Michigan members. Other poems in the program will be by Michigan writers, some old, some new, but ALL good.
Readers who will also be sharing their own poetic works are: Pat Barnes, Mary Louise Bahnemann, Mary Ann Bozenski, Doug Brown, Mono DeAngelo, Kathy Gibson, David Grose, Jean Grose, Don Henkel, Jan Coyne Henkel, Esther Hollan, Randy Le Bar, Joan Le Blanc, Arlene Reese, Gil Saenz, Brenda Tyra, Dinah Tutein, Anita Walters, Dennis White and George Wylie.
