micYOU’RE INVITED TO READ A FAVORITE POEM AT OUR FIRST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH LIBRARY SERIES  Bring a poem by your favorite poet to read at the library and say a few words about why you chose it. Public Poetry’s doing these readings as part of our commitment to continuing the Favorite Poem Project, a nation-wide activity established by Robert Pinsky during his term as Poet Laureate of the United States.  In September 2015, we brought him to Houston to launch this program in our city. The Mayor, the Director of Houston Public Library, Houston’s Poet Laureate and others participated in that first Favorite Poem event. Now it’s your turn to carry it forward at our library open readings.
