Please join Juneau Park Friends for the third event of the 2017 season!

Poetry in the Park at Juneau Park is a free and open-to-the-public event that aims to build community and promote a wider appreciation for the written and spoken word. This outdoor reading series is one-of-a-kind in the Milwaukee area, so don't miss out! The park continues to be a public space during this event, so feel free to take advantage by bringing blankets and chairs, beverages and snacks, pets and pals.

August’s Poetry in the Park lineup features four poets that will tickle your senses and rattle your brain! DESTINNY FLETCHER (Black Girl Be Storm) is a force to be reckoned with in Milwaukee’s poetry scene. RICHARD MEIER (Shelly Gave Jane a Guitar; the Pure Block of the Whole Imaginary) wraps his observations in rhythmic funky surprise. UWM Professor MAURICIO KILWEIN-GUEVARA (Poema; Autobiography of So-and-So) brings a sharp and beautiful clarity to the chaotic world. And LISA FISHMAN (24 Pages and Other Poems; F L O W E R C A R T) tugs at the corners of language, expression, and image in poems that will quench your mind’s thirst.
