Friday, August 25 | Sign-in: 6:30pm | Reading starts: 7pm
The Bookey Readings At The Harlow invites area poets to come and read their work during an open mic night at the Harlow Gallery on Friday, August 25, 2017. Doors open at 6:30pm for poets to ‘sign in’ to read, with sign up ending promptly at 7pm. All poet’s names will be thrown (literally) into a hat, and readers will wait for their name to be selected. Each reader has a maximum of 5 minutes to read, which means they can read 3 short poems of 16 lines each; 2 medium poems of 25-30 lines each; or 1 long poem of 50-60 lines. When your name is called, you’re on! This will be a fun night that gives poets who might not have an opportunity to read their work, to do so in a great venue and in a good spirit of fun and support. Poetry must be appropriate for an all-age audience.
During the reading visitors can also enjoy a solo exhibition of ceramic artworks by Malley Weber which is on view June 30-July 22, 2017.
The Harlow Gallery located in downtown historic Hallowell is home to the Kennebec Valley Art Association, a membership based 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to connecting and celebrating art, artists and community in central Maine since 1963.
