SOMOS Celebrates Nat’l Poetry Month with Two-Week Poetry Event in Taos, now through April 12.
To celebrate National Poetry Month in April, the Society of the Muse of the Southwest (SOMOS) is hosting 12 evenings of poetry readings led by 36 poets — many who live in Taos — until April 12. All readings will be at the SOMOS Salon room beginning at 7 p.m.
The series is free, however, donations to SOMOS are appreciated as are all purchases of poetry books. The series has been curated by Taos poet and co-editor of “Taos Journal of International Poetry and Art,” Veronica Golos.
“Taos and the surrounding area have a plethora of award winning, spoken word, poets with books,” Golos said. “We will hear from a variety of poets including young poets, firmly established poets, newer poets, formal poets, experimental poets, poets reading Shakespeare, poets reading their own translations, etc. We hope that the Taos community will be generous with their attendance, their donations, and will support poets by buying their books! It has been a great pleasure working with SOMOS curating this event.”
All poetry readings will take place at 7 p.m. at the SOMOS Salon, unless otherwise noted. A schedule of appearances is as follows:
