The Bookey Readings: Poetry Out Loud


On Friday, April 26 at 7pm, join us for the first poetry reading of the 2019 lineup of the Bookey Readings at The Harlow – a monthly poetry series running from April through November.  For over 25 years, this series has offered a a unique experience of excellent spoken word in an art gallery setting. 

For April’s event, The Harlow is participating in Poetry Out Loud, featuring students from local high schools including Gardiner, Hall-Dale, Cony, and Winthrop. Join us for an evening of supporting our community’s emerging poets.

Refreshments are served, and a $3 donation to benefit The Harlow is appreciated at the door. For more information about the this event, contact Claire Hersom at
