Moonstone Arts Center

Sunday December 14, 2014 - 1PM @ Brandywine Workshop (728 S. Broad Street)

Reading, Book Launch and Holiday Party

Join us for an afternoon of poetry, refreshments, and camaraderie. Moonstone's new anthology includes 90 of 116 featured poets who read for us in 2014, many of whom will also read on December 14. The poets included in the anthology are some of the best poets reading in Philadelphia today. That makes this a terrific book to give to poetry lovers and to use in poetry classes since readers can go hear the poets as well as read their work. This is a pot luck affair so please bring something good to eat or drink.

Ticketleap $15: Reserve your copy to pick up at the event.

Ticketleap $20: Have your copy shipped to you.
