Melissa Range: Third Thursday Poetry

September 20, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Third Thursday Poetry highlights an esteemed literary tradition: spoken word. The ongoing series—now entering its fourth year—provides the unique opportunity for museum guests to meet and mingle with visiting poets, enjoy divergent styles of writing, and participate in open mic readings.

Third Thursday Poetry is funded in part by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
