Milwaukie Poetry Series
July 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
An event every month that begins at 6:00 pm on day Second of the month, repeating until July 13, 2022
The Milwaukie Poetry Series Committee and the Ledding Library of Milwaukie are delighted to announce the Fifteenth Season of the Milwaukie Poetry Series!
This exciting series of readings by established local poets will take place on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm
The format will include a mixture of poets who have read previously and those new to the Series.
Due to the pandemic, the readings will continue to be held virtually. They will be livestreamed from the Willamette Falls Media Center on the Ledding Library YouTube Channel. The readings will then be available for viewing on demand on and on DVD through the library.
At some point in the Season it is the hope to move to in-person readings at the Ledding Library. Stay tuned for updates on when and if that can happen.
