Poets and Pints

Bookmark hosts National Poetry Month celebration

“The purpose of poetry is to restore to mankind the possibility to wonder.”

— Octavio Paz

April is National Poetry Month and Bookmark is hosting their annual Poets and Pints event to celebrate. Join them at the Queue on April 30 from 7–9 pm to celebrate local PEI poets. This year’s event features local poets Bren Simmers, Renée Blanchette and Brent MacLaine reading from their new poetry collections, followed by a moderated conversation between the poets and an audience Q&A. The event will conclude with an open mic where other poets and aspiring poets can read their poetry to the audience. Register for the open mic by emailing charlottetown@bookmarkreads.ca. Refreshments will be available as well as a cash bar. All are welcome. The Queue is located next to the Pilot House at 70 Grafton Street,  Charlottetown.
