First Christian Church to Hold 11th Annual Favorite Poem Night

First Christian ChurchKids, you may or may not know this, but, at one point in my life I was headed in a completely different direction than the one I currently walk.  Yes, I did all sorts of things as a kid, but generally there was a common theme to a lot of it.  I really liked school, and I loved the libraries.   So of course, I had my head in books a lot.

When I was small up until about my junior year of college, I was going to be a teacher.  Specifically, I was going to be a high school English teacher.  I know, can you imagine?  I’d not only be the goofiest teacher ever, but half the time I’d be mistaken for a student.   But yes, I was always in love with books, plays, poetry, and all that stuff.  I did creative writing, I did theater, I did tons of reading.   So when I see things like this upcoming event, I’m always interested.

The 11th Annual Favorite Poem Night will be on Thursday, April 25 at 7:00 p.m. at the Fellowship Hall of the First Christian Church, 200 South Limit Ave. Admission is free.  So you can hear a lot of local friends reading their favorites from all sorts of sources.  I imagine someone will do Shakespeare, someone might do Frost, someone else might do Poe or Plath, maybe even some Dickinson.  I personally would love to see someone try to do something like Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll.  Can you imagine that?  That would be fun.  For me, some of my favorites are classics like “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe, but I’m sure everyone has a favorite or two in their mind.
