It’s time for another evening of poetry and pleasure! The Nakusp Public Library is hosting its fourth annual “For the Love of Poetry” evening, a popular and highly anticipated event.

Fifteen presenters will read their personal favourites after sharing with the audience what this poem means to them. It’s an eclectic mix: poems from other countries and times, modern poems, Victorian poems, thoughtful poems, humorous poems, and usually a couple of rollicking ballads.

Guitarist Caelen LaRocque will be providing music for the evening and a delicious array of refreshments will be on hand. The public is encouraged to come and enjoy a rich feast of food, music, and poetic words.

The date is Friday, May 11 at 7 p.m. at the Nakusp Public Library. As usual, there’s no charge for the inspired events that the Nakusp Public Library hosts.
