On Sunday April 28, the Ancient City Poets will gather to celebrate National Poetry Month (April) at The Gallery Cafe of St. Augustine (located at 1974 US-1 South in the Staples Plaza) from 3 to 5 p.m.
In joyful anticipation of influential poet and folk singer Bob Dylan's concert stop in St. Augustine one week later on May 5th, all are invited and encouraged to read or perform or share the lyrics of their favorite Bob Dylan song. The event will be conducted in a "renga style" with no emcee. Poets will approach the podium one by one and share their words or the words of others. Poets do not have to follow the theme.
The Ancient City Poets monthly readings are free and open to poetry lovers of all ages. For more information, call The Gallery Cafe of St. Augustine, Florida at (904) 825-9944.

The idea is simple: select a poem you love during National Poetry Month (April) then carry it with you on Poem in Your Pocket Day, sharing it with co-workers, family, and friends.
Celebrate on April 18, 2013.
Poem in Your Pocket Day has been celebrated each April in New York City since 2002, and nationwide since 2008. Each year, parks, bookstores, workplaces, and other venues burst with open readings of poems from pockets.
