Thursday March 3rd, 2016 at 6 p.m. in the GoggleWorks with poet Mary Arguelles

Pardon me, but I just crawled out of a snow bank.  Did you feel that sun today?
Here's the plan: if we all get together and breathe spring, we can make it happen!

Are you IN!  I thought so!

Open your eyes and put your hands together for First Thursday Poetry

March 3rd at 6:00 pm ~ The GoggleWorks Center for the Arts Cafe'


Open Mic

This event is free and open to the public, you, your friends, your family, everyone!
Berks Bards sponsors this monthly gathering with the support of a grant from the
PA Partners in the Arts, administered locally by the Berks Arts Council.  (You know,
the ones who put on the Jazz Fest!)  Oh, and with the generous support of the
Friends of the Berks County Public Libraries, thank you, thank you!  And with the
awesome support of members, volunteers and friends of Berks Bards who live and
breathe the lively art of poetry in the Greater Reading Area.
