Valentine and Book Spine Poetry Events

The Cary Collection has planned several poetry-themed events around its Spring exhibition, "The Printed Poem; The Poem as Print."

We will host a Valentines Poetry Reading on Friday, February 14, from 2 to 3 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

Compete through the month of February for a chance to win a Java's gift card by composing your own "Book Spine Poem." The winners will be announced at a reception on Friday, March 7, from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Cary. (Contest details are available here.)

We will announce other events soon!
