Poetry: Alive & Well & Living in Manitowoc! will be held Saturday, April 14, 12:00, at the Manitowoc Public Library, in honor of National Poetry Month. Ten community leaders will read their favorite meaningful poems, and ten local poets will partner with them to read the original works they wrote in
response. Emcees Jessica Lyn Van Slooten and Emilie Lindemann, English professors from UW and Silver Lake College, will introduce the ten teams and perform as poets themselves. Think “Dancing with the Stars” but switch it to “Reading with the Poets.”
All who attend will be given a booklet of the poems to continue enjoying them at home. The program will be held in the Balkansky Room. Light refreshments will be provided. The Manitowoc Public Library is at 707 Quay St.
