Poetry Aloud

Here's a great idea for a celebration: the Saskatoon Public Library is having a centennial, and posting 100 poems in 100 days, chosen from submissions to the library.

I am a better judge of poetry when it is read aloud, but I am impressed with the quality of this. And I believe Library Squirrel when she says some of them make her cry.

I'd also like to announce that our own "Oil Hill Poetry Reading Series" continues on Tuesday, Feb. 28, a week from tomorrow. The poet this time is Dr. John Jenkinson, from Butler and instrumental in continuing the series, celebrating the publication of "Rebekah Orders Lasagna" at 7:30 pm. It's free, open to the public, with a book-signing and receptionto follow.

And it all take place in the L.W. Nixon library here at Butler Community College, in the 600 building (behind the flagpole), 2nd floor. It's one of the most lovely events we host all year, and would make a great date for those inclined to go out with your dearly beloved.

My favorite part is hearing the poetry read aloud.
