Poetry reading, competition Nov. 10 at the library

By Trina Rivera
Special to The PREVIEW

Poetry is an art in which one can express themselves through an entanglement of beautifully placed words. In just under two weeks, you’ll have the opportunity to bring your poetry to life at your Ruby M. Sisson Memorial Library and have the chance to win a prize.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 10, the library will be holding a Poetry Remix. This Poetry Remix is open to all ages who would like to read/perform their own poetry or read/perform another person’s poetry. That’s right — if you prefer, you do not have to perform your own work. You can read a work by another artist.

There will be two categories in each age group for prizes: best performed poetry written by another artist and best performed poetry written by you. There will be four age categories: children, fourth through sixth grade, seventh through 12th grade and adults.

Please call the library at 264-2209 to register or to have your questions answered. We hope you’ll join us to share your poetry or to read one of your favorite works by another author.
