Brendan Allen and others at the Tap Room Poetry Session on Sunday
We love the poetry scene in Lawrence. One of our favorite local poetry readings are the monthly sessions hosted by the Tap Room Poetry Series. Held in the basement of the Taproom, these readings include open mic and special guests.
Highlights of open mic this month included Sara Leaver's poem Sloppy Seduction which incerted a phrase we liked "Cheap Cracker Jack prize I never want to keep."
We liked Simone Savannah's delivery in her untitled works, and Amanda Frost's poem which included Old English History's price value of each type of finger on a hand.
This month, the poetry series included readings from fiction writers Daniel Hoyt and Kellie Wells who both read from their new books.
More on the new books of Hoyt and Wells can be found on the Tap Room Poetry Series website here: http://taproompoetry.blogspot.com/
