Dead Poets’ Haven 2018

Ven, come, El Día de Los Muertos nears. Light your bonfires, hang your lanterns, prepare your masks. We are set to gather for an afternoon of verse written or inspired by poets who have passed. An open mic awaits. Do not be afraid. Spirits may haunt but will not stay.

Everyone is welcome.

2018-19 Haven Season Launch
