Five Reasons You Should Attend the WFOP Winter Festival of Poets Reading

You are cordially invited to attend the Winter Festival of Poets Reading this Sunday afternoon, February 12th at 2:pm. The event is sponsored by the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets and held at Avol's Bookstore, 315 West Gorham Street in Madison, WI.

Featured readers will be Susan Elbe, Robin Chapman, Tim Walsh, Morgan Harlow, Geoff Collins and Lori Lipsky (that's me).

Here are five reasons to consider leaving the comfort of your home to drive on down and attend:

  • Football season has come to an end and attending this event will help you out with your withdrawal symptoms.

  • Since the Festival is held at Avol's Books, you can browse among stacks and shelves of amazing used books both before and after the event. 20% off all books in February!

  • A little more poetry in your life would be a good thing

  • It was advertised in the Isthmus Daily Page (Isthmus Magazine) so it must be legitimate.

  • It'll be my first public poetry reading. Kind faces in the audience would be a comfort.

I love these reasons! Sounds like a blast! And that Lori Lipsky poet would be worth listening to even if she were the only one there.

I wish I could come to hear you read! Unless my schedule changes (which it could!) I won't be able to be there.

I'm excited! See you there!

Thank you, Suef.

Joanie, It'll be nice to have you there!
