Pure poetry.

Poets, start your engines...this Sunday at 12:30 there will be a poetry reading followed by an open mic at The Gallery at St. John's, so bring a pocket poem to read--and don't forget to wear plaid!

"Plaid Poem in Your Plaid Pocket"
Sunday, April 10th from 12:30 to 2pm 

The Plaid Show is co-sponsored by the Arts Community of Easton. 
Plaid and poetry will celebrate and intersect with
 “Plaid Poems in Your Plaid Pockets” 

Based on the annual “Poem in Your Pocket” begun by The American Poets Organization in New York City, this event celebrates the art and form of plaid and poetry in downtown Easton.  “Poem in Your Pocket” was begun in 2002 and celebrated in New York City through open readings of poetry in bookstores, schools and libraries and invites everyone to burst forth with a reading of a poem from their pocket.  

Organized by Maryann Riker  of Phillipsburg, NJ, local poets Mary Buccos, Margaret Campbell,  Pamelee LaDuca, Jim McGlynn, Nancy Scott and Beth Seetch will read their favorite plaid poems from their plaid pockets.  Anyone who loves plaid and poetry is welcome to join us in an open reading afterwards.
