NEXT POETRY GILD MEETING: TUESDAY, JUNE 25TH, 2013 AT 7PM IN THE BRATTEN ROOM IN ARDEN GILD HALL

Original Spoken Word Poetry in Arden!

We will be holding a Poetry Gild meeting and reading on Tuesday, June 25th.

The business meeting, for those who wish to join the Gild and vote on Gild business, will begin at 7:00pm in the Bratten Room the Lower Arden Gild Hall. Just go to the right of the building and down the steps through the Moonlight Amphitheater. Enter the door on the brick patio/ stage and go all the way to the back (through one more door). Look for the POETRY signs to guide your way!

For those who wish only to participate in the reading, the general poetry reading will begin at 7:30pm also in the Bratten Room.

*Please bring original spoken word poetry to showcase for the group, and/or a poem by one of your favorite poets to share.

HOMEWORK: 1) Write a poem that sounds as if someone is speaking to you: use words like “you” or “we”, it’s kind of like writing a letter to yourself; 2) bring a poem that you love; 3) choose and email two or three poems you would like to include in our next chap book.

You may also bring refreshments for the group to share.
A suggested donation of $2 will be happily accepted to help with gild operations.

Centennial Celebration and Mourning
1913 it was the best of years, it was the worst of years. It was the year of Pittsburgh’s Land Value Tax; it was the year the United States  income tax. It was the first years of the US Georgist Victory; it was the year the greatest Georgist Schism. Come to Pittsburg to celebrate the 100 years of the land value tax in Pennsylvania and to mourn 200 years of income tax that was supposed to fall only on the rental income.

The 106th Arden Fair will be early this year on Saturday August 31. We will also provide any information, books, conversation on or about Henry George and his ideas. In addition we will be selling balloons and need volunteers to help inflate, tie on ribbons and walk through the Fair to sell them. Please call Sadie 475-1745.
