Poetry event at the Kent

Area libraries celebrated poetry month with poetry workshops throughout the month and culminated in a poetry reading at the Kent Theatre Tuesday evening April 30.

Those reading poetry included: Back row (L to R): Terry Fales, Donna Clark, Melissa Robinson, Mary Bronkema, Lillianna Berg, Carolyn Davis, Bea Hesley, Tom Anderson, KDL’s Bethany Metivier, teen parapro. Front row (L to R):  Lee Ritzema, Jeri Bell, Ivy Berg.

Cedar Springs and Kent District Library branches (Nelson/Sand Lake, Spencer, Kent City/Tyrone) partnered for the event.

According to Cedar Springs Public Library Director, it was a smaller, more intimate event than was last held in 2011, with 12 readers taking the stage to read either their own poetry, or a poem they liked. Several read poems written by George Hesley, who recently passed away and had been looking forward to the event.

“It was personal and beautiful,” noted Clark.

Clark hopes that a poetry reading at the Kent can become an annual event.
