We want to give a shout out to Heather Thomas, the newly appointed Poet Laureate for Berks County! Berks Bards is so proud of you! The event on October 1st at the Miller Center was an awesome gathering of presidents and poets, journalists and community leaders who EACH read a favorite poem in honor of the occasion.
It was an outstanding tribute to the power of poetry to transform a life...or a morning!
It was also the kick-off of "Reading Reads: The Greater Berks Literary Festival." Berks Bards is proud to be a part of this wonderful community effort.
Bravo, Heather Thomas! The "blue ruby' rocks!
