Culture Cafe and the Caledon Library's Stopping by Mill on a Poetry Evening

A crisp early winter's evening, a gorgeous venue, refreshments, neighbours, writers, music and poetry. Caledon Public Library hosted an evening of poetry at the Alton Mills Arts Centre in partnership with the Culture CafĂ©. As part of CPL’s Read Local Caledon initiative, the evening celebrated talented homegrown poets in the Caledon community.

Our poets, Harry and Judy performed along with other local award winning poets. The talent in one room was amazing.

Judy performed her award winning poem Forfeit. We all laughed. She did other poems from her forthcoming book, Fat and Other F Words. Hilarious!

Harry was great as always. My granddaughter enjoyed his poetry especially with the addition of music. The other poets were fabulous! My granddaughter and I enjoyed every second of their performance. We laughed, we cried. 

I don't want to forget to mention the to die for desserts along with the beautiful decorated room.

We can't wait to go to the next poetry session in January.

A big thank you to Robert Simeon (Caledon Library) who gave me permission to post his photos along with the first paragraph  above. And thank you to the Caledon Library and Alton Mills for providing a venue for our poets.
