"Favorite Poems"

Lectures / Seminars Come listen to the voices of the town! This popular holiday event was launched in 1999 in conjunction with the then Poet Laureate, Robert Pinsky. The reading tradition of community members of all ages and walks of life continues each year at the Wellfleet Library. The idea is for ordinary people—not poets themselves—to express and convey their enjoyment of poetry. Before reading a poem, each participant will explain the significance of the chosen poem to him or her. The poems range from the hilarious to the heart warming to the serious and thought provoking. This event has been so successful it is now in its 16th year. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served. To be a reader or for more information, call Mort Inger at 508-349-3115 or the Wellfleet library staff at 508-349-0310. Category: Special Events. Cost: FREE! Phone: 508-349-0310.
