Dead Poets’ Haven Resurrected!

Sunday November 1st, 2015 at 2pm.
Audreys Books 10702 Jasper Ave.

Following All Hallows’ Eve, the Stroll of Poets invites you to a spooky afternoon of poems to, by and for the souls- both distant and local- of poets who have passed on. All are welcome to bring a piece written by or inspired by a dearly departed poet.

So join us at Audreys Books (10702 Jasper Ave) at 2pm Sunday November 1st. The format will be entirely open mic.

Just as Virgil accompanied Dante through the deep dark woods, the words of past poets can comfort…..or haunt!
