Monday Poets

The Free Library is pleased to present Monday Poets on a Monday evening every month, year round.

Now in its 24th year, the Monday Poets Reading Series showcases a variety of talented poets with local and national reputations. Readings take place from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Heim Center of the Parkway Central Library, 1901 Vine Street. Copies of the featured poets’ books may be available for cash purchase. This year we also will have two open-mic readings for those interested in presenting their work.
