The Bard’s Boutique Artist Spotlight presents:  April, Celebrate National Poetry Month!

by Patricia Duff 1st April 2024

 

Welcome to the Bard’s Boutique  Poetry Reading Series to celebrate poetry with island poets during April, National Poetry Month.

 

Please join us upstairs in the Front Room Gallery at the Bayview Cash Store from 1-3 p.m. Sunday, April 21 as we welcome local poets David Ossman, Robin Barre, Mary Elizabeth Himes, Raul Sanchez and Dallas Huth. (David says he’s going to read some Dylan Thomas to us; don’t miss that beautiful voice reading one of the greatest voices of the 20th century.)

 

Poetry in the Afternoon is a pay-what-you-will donation event to support Island Shakespeare Festival (www.islandshakespearefest.org),  an outdoor summer of theater happening July 19-Sept. 8, 2024 and  featuring Shakespeare’s  “King Lear” and “The Lucky Chance” by Aphra Behn.

 

Look for these future Sunday poetry readings with these themes: Fathers: June 16; The Cusp: Sept. 22.

 

The Bard’s Boutique in the Bayview Cash Store is located at 5603 Bayview Road in Langley.
