At least 3 separate people mentioned how inspired they felt after the October reading, and we have no doubt this next one will do the same! Join us on November 10th at 7 pm for 2nd Mondays Poetry with Larry Colker and our very own, Denise Weuve! Sign ups begin at 6:45 and reading at 7 (It’s getting darker, lets get started earlier!).
