The Veranda Presents...

A Downtown Chatham Outdoor Big Poetry Reading

Free! Rain or Shine!

Come for 10 minutes, for half an hour, for as long or as little as you like. There will be funny poems, serious poems, story poems, and nonsense poems. There will be poems by famous authors and by unknown authors. All are poems that were written to be enjoyed when read aloud.

Bring a chair, if you like. The reader is Clair Culliford of the Veranda Presents.

There will be poems by Coleridge, Kipling, Herrick, Blake, Yeats, Frost, Milton, and more. In honour of RetroFest, a car poem will be read.
