Public Poetry

Poetry comes alive the first Saturday of each month at 2 PM with readings performed by a creative mix of artists. Audience members are encouraged to read a piece by their favorite poet, then stop by a local eatery for “After-Words” to mix and mingle with poets, friends and others.

This series is organized by Public Poetry and is presented in partnership with Houston Public Library.
