Cheltenham Center for the Arts is pleased to be partnering with Open Book Bookstore for our Spring Fundraiser, to present a night of shared poetry.  April is National Poetry Month, but we just can’t stop!  We’ve invited some fantastic poets for a cabaret evening of spoken words.  The night includes visiting poets, wine, tempting treats, art and books!   Join us to celebrate A Fine Line…in conjunction with our 76th Annual Juried Painting Show at the Cheltenham Center for the Arts! Tickets are 1 for $30 or 2 for $50.


The schedule:
7pm: Meet, gather, imbibe, snack, and browse the 76th Annual Juried Painting Show.

7:30pm: Round One begins. Our featured poets take turns at the mic and each share an original work.

7:50pm to 8:10pm: Browse and socialize, meet the poets, have them sign books. (Open Book will have an on-site bookstore featuring the works of the evening’s poets.)

8:10pm to 8:30pm: Round Two begins: our poets read again!

8:30 – 9 – You’re up!  Poetry Open Mic Round: If you have a poem you’d like to read aloud, this is the time to do it!

Here’s how it works. Come prepared and bring a poem with you (either original or not). If you want to read but don’t have a poem, we’ll have poems at the ready, inspired by the art exhibit. Each reader will sign up on-site during the event and is limited to no more than 3 minutes at the mic.
