Verse of Ages: A multigenerational poetry reading
Thu Sep 5 2013 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
TaborSpace, 5441 SE Belmont St., Portland, OR
Oregon Writers Colony has put together a unique lineup of poets ranging from 12-year-old Anna Marie Meneely to 90-year-old James Fleming, for an evening celebrating the spoken word. Verse of Ages poetry reading is a rare opportunity for the literary community to hear the words of nine decades of poets all on one stage, all in one evening, in the inviting setting of Southeast Portland’s TaborSpace.
Each poet will read individually, while the café style setup of TaborSpace will provide the perfect opportunity for conversations around verse, styles, slant rhymes… you name it.
Poets include Anna Marie Meneely, Bret Jorgensen, Wendy Chin-Tanner, Dena Rash Guzman, Nancy Flynn, Katherine Binford, Tricia Knoll, Gary R. Kirby, Doreen Gandy Wiley, and James Fleming. Sue Parman will be emcee for the evening.
Come and bring your friends to this free, all-ages event.
