Celebrate the start of winter with local poets and warm cider. On Saturday, December 13, Winter Poems will offer you the chance to take some time out from holiday activities and focus your energy on the change of seasons. The celebration will begin at 5:30pm with baked goods, crafts and poetry chapbooks from local poets and the first sale of a series of handmade chapbooks, 100 Thousand Poets for Change Toledo. Portion of the proceeds will benefit Sylvania Avenue Neighbors, in an effort to obtain non-profit status. Starting at 6pm, an hour of open mic will give local writers the chance to take the stage for short readings. The evening’s events are sponsored by Sylvania Avenue Neighbors and 100 Thousand Poets for Change Toledo.
