      4th Annual National Poetry Month Party & Reading

      Celebrate National Poetry Month with Milkweed Editions! Join us for an evening honoring outstanding poets from the upper Midwest and the vitality of the poetry community at large. A reception will take place on the second floor of the Open Book building with poets and their many fans (plus poetry-themed drinks and hors d’oeuvres), and then the fun continues with a reading featuring the finalists* for this year’s Ballard Spahr Prize for Poetry. (Finalists will be announced in early April.)

      6:00 p.m. | Reception
      7:00 p.m. | Reading featuring Ballard Spahr Prize for Poetry Finalists

      RSVP to reserve your spot! Suggested donation of $10 to help cover food & drinks. No one will be turned away for lack of funds—all are welcome!
