Wylie's Smith Library is encouraging all creative kids in fourth through 12th grade to sign up to read their original poetry at its Teen/Tween Poetry Café, from 5 to 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 18. The event is hosted by the SPL Teen Library Council.
Rather than a competition, the event is a showcase in which audience members will spend an evening listening to Wylie's young poets while enjoying refreshments in a Parisian atmosphere.
Participants should sign up in the library's Teen Room by Saturday, Feb. 9, for the opportunity to perform. All poems are subject to prior approval; once registered, submit poetry selections to Kelsey.Sidwell@WylieTexsa.gov. A mandatory rehearsal will be held between 3 and 5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16.
For more information, call 972-516-6264 or visit the Teen Room.
