Poetry Month Open Mic Night Celebration

April 7, 2013 at 5:46 pm 1 comment


Book Culture is celebrating National Poetry Month by hosting an open mic night on April 19th at 7pm. On the second floor of the 112th street location (where we usually hold our events) refreshments will be served and poets will read their work. We are very excited to be getting involved with this great tradition. National Poetry Month is a month long celebration in support of living poets as well as America’s poetic history. Our goal for this year’s Poetry Month is to bring poetry to the public. We are asking members of the community to participate by reading their own poetry. If you or someone you know wants to read their original work, please email kerry@bookculture.com to guarantee a spot. We ask the readers to cap their performance at 10 minutes. We are very excited to be working with members of our community, including Columbia University student organizations as well as longtime customers, to celebrate local talent and hear the voices of our friends and neighbors.

    I visited your store for the first time for the poetry open mic night and I must say I was very pleasantly surprised by the diversity of the participants and material shared. I found the evening to be thoroughly enjoyable and will look forward to future poetry events. Poetry is very underserved and it is wonderful that you have given it a voice and a place for those of us who love it to be able to relax and enjoy. Bravo!!
