Poetry Out Loud
May 27, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Oregon Arts Commission hosts Oregon’s Poetry Out Loud , a national program of the Poetry Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. More than 7,000 Oregon kids and teens participate every year. The statewide competition, in which participants compete for a spot to represent Oregon in Washington DC, is typically held at the Salem Public Library. This year, they’re going virtual, and you can view it tonight at 6 pm on Facebook Live: https://www.facebook.com/events/222230559229468/ Oregon’s previous poet laureate, Kim Stafford, and new one, Anis Mojgani, will both be sharing, as will 7 young Oregonians.
