Join us as Poetry in the Park continues on Tuesday, August 9 at 6:30 PM. This event is part of an outdoor reading series that celebrates the written and spoken word. We will gather near the Solomon Juneau statue overlooking Lake Michigan to hear the poems of former Milwaukee poets laureate and other incendiary community voices. 

Please bring your own chairs, blankets, beverages, and snacks. The event is free and open to the public -- so tell all your friends, bring all your pets, and come and go as you please!
