Favorite Poem Reading, Saturday, May 4 at 1:00 pm. Florida Studio Theatre, Keating Theatre. Tickets $12. This event is part of PoetryLife weekend, May 3-4, which honors students, educators and the creative community in which we live.
Hear your fellow Sarasotans read their favorite poems by published poets. Will you hear Frost? Keats? Collins? Oliver? Which of your friends and neighbors will be among the readers? Find out at this year’s Favorite Poem Project, established by Robert Pinsky during his tenure as U.S. Poet Laureate. In 2012 Pinsky brought the Project to Florida Studio Theater, and its success inspired PoetryLife weekend. PoetryLife weekend is sponsored by Bookstore1Sarasota, Florida Studio Theatre, Gulf Coast Community Foundation and The Sarasota Reading Council.
