Dinner with a Poem
At this lively — and delicious! — evening event, join award-winning poet Lynn Levin for a talk on appreciating poetry, play a poetry game, have the opportunity to recite some poems yourself, and partake of a delicious two-course dinner in the private dining room at Park Plates.

At this event, we’ll have fun with poetry and gain a greater understanding of its beauty and power.
