Jun 17: Sam Ragan Poetry Festival in Southern Pines, NC

Saturday, June 17, 2006
Weymouth Center for the Arts & Humanities
555 East Connecticut Avenue
Southern Pines, NC

I'm looking forward to this annual event, held by the NC Poetry Society:

— A day-long festival filled with poetry, music, celebration, and fun.
Registration starts at 9:30 a.m., and festivities will last until about 3 p.m. You can order a box lunch for $8.50 or bring your own.

— Featured poets and performers: Margaret Baddour will MC in the morning, which includes performances by Gibbons Ruark, Michael Beadle, Bill Blackley, Donald Thompson, and Bill Griffin. In the afternoon, Sara Claytor will MC activities, which include performances by Stephen Smith, Shelby and Linda Stephenson, and Gilbert Abraham.

— Open mic readings will be held throughout the day, so bring a poem (limit one poem/one page please so everyone may have an opportunity to read).

--Free & open to the public.
