Mesa Public Library is pleased to host Poetry Gatherings, a place for people to share their love of poetry. The gatherings take place on the second Thursday of each month in the Southwest Room at Mesa Public Library from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM. Anyone, of any age, who is interested in poetry may join us to read their own poetry and receive supportive feedback, read works of their favorite authors, or just listen.
The Library is very pleased to continue this series, additionally providing materials from the collections, including audiotapes and CDs of poets reading original work, references, and suggestions for further reading. The Poetry Gatherings were on hiatus during the summer of 2014, but have resumed as of October.
Jane Lin has facilitated the Poetry Gatherings for many years, and continues to maintain the Nuclear Poets mailing list of local poetry events (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/nuclearpoets/).
