Escape into Fiction hosts People's Poetry - Sep 28 at 6 PM; Library hosts Teen Poets Society at 6:30

1 - People's poetry 

An open mic event at the Escape Into Fiction book store facilitated by Jamil Adams

I was planning on being there myself until the Town Council meeting moved from last week to this. And then I found the Finance Committee meeting scheduled for 6 PM. Yes, the same start time.

Oh well. I'll do the meetings, you can do the poetry, we'll meet later and compare notes.

Or as Rumi said:
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
and rightdoing there is a field.
I'll meet you there."
