Don’t miss out on what Houston Press named the Best Reading Series 2011. The next Public Poetry event will take place at 2 PM on November 5th at Discovery Green. As usual, you’ll meet award-winning poets as well as children authors who have worked with WITS writers in schools, hospitals, libraries, museums, and homeless shelters.
The Featured Poets on November 5th are Sam Amadon, Robin Davidson, Elisa A. Garza, and Dave Parsons, the 2011 Texas Poet Laureate. Each Featured Poet has 6 minutes to read, followed by a short WITS student poem, another fast round, and a final bonus student poem. You won’t want to miss the 2 PM start, with a special guest appearance by Houston singer/songwriter Don Sanders.
