Readings to celebrate National Poetry Month

Make text smaller Make text larger


— When T.S. Eliot wrote “April is the cruelest month” (from The Wasteland, 1922), he didn’t know about National Poetry month.

Members of the American Readers Theatre will celebrate the occasion with a free poetry reading at the Milford Public Library’s Community Room (Harford Street branch) at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 19. The selections will represent a cross-section of poetry and may include some original work. An open mic will follow.

A celebration of poets and their work is an annual event in April since the 1996 inauguration of National Poetry Month, created by the Academy of American Poets.
