Poetry Under the Oaks

Stephanie Haimes

Come and help us celebrate the 12th anniversary of the W. T. Bland Public Library’s Poetry Under the Oaks – our annual celebration of poetry and poets – on Saturday, April 17 starting at 11:00am. Anyone may sign up to read their own poetry or their favorite poem. Remember to bring a lawn chair and your lunch and feed both your body and soul.

Celebrate national Poetry Month beneath the library’s oak trees. Enjoy the beauty of nature and the artistry of poets from Central Florida and beyond. Bring your lunch. Read a poem. Hear others read “What oft was thought, but ne’er so well express’d.”

If you would like to read poem ‘Under the Oaks”, you may sign up to read either in person at the
W. T. Bland Public Library or by calling 735-7180 option 5. In case of rain or threatening weather, the poetry reading will take place in the Library’s Community Room.

Poetry Under the Oaks will be held at the W. T. Bland Public Library located at 1995 N. Donnelly Street in Mount Dora. All Library programs are free and open to the public. For additional information, call (352) 735-7180 option 5.
