Calling all poetry lovers. It’s time to get ready for Rockingham Library’s Autumn Poetry Open Mic. Rustle up some poems by a favorite author. Dig out some poems you’ve penned over the years. Or sharpen your pencils (and your wits) to write some original poetry. Then get ready to share on Poetry Open Mic Night Monday, November 4 at 7 p.m. at the Rockingham Library in Bellows Falls.     

Readers should come prepared to read up to five poems. To begin, each person will read one poem. Depending on the number of participants, a second, third, fourth and even fifth round of reading will follow. For more information, go to, call (802) 463-4270, email [email protected] or stop by the Library at 65 Westminster St.
