Poetry "Slam"
We hosted a wonderful poetry reading last Tuesday night.  I incorrectly called it a "Poetry Slam" not realizing that had a meaning quite different than poetry reading.
"A poetry slam is a competition at which poets read or recite original work. These performances are then judged on a numeric scale by previously selected members of the audience."
We did not have a judging of the poems, but we rather had poetry reading which at times was quite dramatic and often moving.  Just wanted to clarify.  
This was open to all levels of poets.  Maybe we will hear your poems next time.



Chinese Brush Painting with Yimin Shao has been postponed until February.   The new dates are 5 Saturdays from 2-4pm from
Feb. 15th -March 15th.  Space is still available!
