We are pleased to announce the launch of our 2022/2023 Poets’ Haven Reading series. This year we are celebrating our long awaited return to in-person poetry at the Upper Crust Café.

Appropriately, our theme this year is “Out of the Box!” We have all felt contained by the experiences of the past couple of years and the restrictions the pandemic has placed on us. Here is a chance to express the joy of being out of your various boxes, bubbles or other metaphorical containers.

Please join us on Monday, September 12, 7 pm at the Upper Crust Café. The format will be open mic with sign up taking place that night. The cost is still a very reasonable $5.

Hope to see you there as we celebrate being “Out of the Box!”

2022-23 Haven Reading Series Sign-Up Now Open!

Hear ye, hear ye Stroll members: the Stroll of Poets board is pleased to announce that the Haven Reading Series 2022/2023 season will be commencing with a return to the Upper Crust restaurant on September 12th with an all open mic engagement.

The Haven will then occur at the Upper Crust every second Monday night after that (biweekly for at least the first half of the season) with a special reading at Audrey’s Books in November as well. Four 8 – 10 minute featured reader spots will be available at each Haven Reading.

Each session will also require additional volunteers to mic host and to assist as a door host so we ask that you sign up for one of these spots also if you can. Once you have signed up, confirmation and reminder notices will be sent to you via e-mail.
