Do you have a favorite poem? One you read as a child, in high school, in college or perhaps yesterday. Come and share it with us. All ages are encouraged to participate. There is only one rule: that the poems read are not poems the readers or their friends have written. We ask that you choose poems that are written by poets like Walt Whitman; Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes, William Carlos Williams, etc. Every reader is allotted five minutes to read and give a brief reason why that poem was chosen.
