Poetry Celebration at Domenico's The Other Side

Friday, March 4, 7-9 p.m. The Rag & Bone Shop Poetry Theater presents: Holy Disciples of the Wild One, an evening of poetry's greatest hits, as selected and performed by Shawn Roberts, Robert Lecher iii, Will Welch, Adam Spiridilozzi and Orin Domenico.

If you are among the many who are uncertain about poetry, but intrigued, should especially make a point to make it to this event.  Poems have been selected purposefully to be inviting and accessible to a diverse audience.

Included will be selections from Whitman, Shakespeare, Dickinson, Blake, Millay, Hughes, Byron, Frost and others, plus a sprinkling of originals.  Those of you who attended the Yeats' reading last February know you are in for an energizing, uplifting evening spent in the incomparable company of the great poets.  The title of the reading comes from the German romantic poet Holderlin: But poets as you say are like the holy disciple of the Wild One / Who used to stroll over the fields through the whole divine night.

$5 donation requested to keep the lights on at The Other Side. After-party at the Green Onion Pub across the street.
