We are pleased to announce our second annual “African-American Read-In,” to be held on Sunday, February 25th, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM, at Two Wrasslin’ Cats Coffee House, 374 Town Street, East Haddam, at the junction of Routes 82 and 151.
This event, which will open the 2018 Together We Rise CT Poetry Series, celebrates Black History Month, and is part of the National African American Read-In sponsored by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English. Last year’s African-American Read-In was an energetic and well attended event, with readers and listeners enjoying a rich variety of poems by African-American poets and building a powerful sense of community, which continued throughout the 2017 Poetry Series.
Participants are encouraged to bring favorite poems by African American poets to read, read from the selection of works by African-American poets that will be available at the Read-In, or just come and support this important event.
