So & So Poetry Series

Join us at 6:30 PM for a So & So Poetry Series Reading prior to a showing of Blue Sky, a play co-produced by Burning Coal Theatre Company and CAM Raleigh.

The So & So Series began in Boston in 2006 and moved to Raleigh in 2008. Featuring both local and national poets, So & So has hosted more than 300 readers, including Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winners. Poets will be responding to pieces of their choosing in whatever exhibit is being shown at the time of their reading. The hope is that this will start a dialogue between the poets and the artists and may even lead to interesting and exciting collaborations.

This month's readers will be Eric Martin and Kathryn L Pringle.
