In celebration of National Poetry Month, host John Milkereit and the Net Poets Society read from their award-winning work at the Friendswood Public Library. Audience comments included fantastic, moving, playful, and a hoot. Poets were Erica Lehrer, John E. Rice, Mona Follis, Dede Fox, Adamarie Fuller, and Kathryn Lane. Host John Milkereit concluded the evening with a reading in his inimitable style and had everyone laughing and hanging on his next word. The Friendswood Public Library is honored to host these artists and hope to have them back to read again.
Also in attendance was Dr. John Gorman, professor of literature at UHCL, who has accepted an invitation to read at the Friendswood Public Library in the not too distant future. Our next poetry event will be hosted by Oscar Pená on Wednesday, July 18 at 7pm.
