12th Annual Poetry on the Patio, Thursday, April 29 at Noon

You are all cordially invited to the UST Libraries’ “Poetry on the Patio” on Thursday, April 29 at Noon on the patio of the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library.   We look forward each April to calling attention to National Poetry Month and this will be our 12th poetry reading.  Each year, several members of the UST Community read poems – written by someone other than themselves – that they treasure.  It’s a sharing of the love of poetry by people from all walks of life and all corners of the campus.  It begins at Noon and goes through 1pm –  what a lovely way to spend your lunch hour.   We hope you will stop by, bring your lunch, pull up a chair and enjoy the selections chosen by your UST colleagues and friends.  Hosted by library director, Dan Gjelten, this year’s roster includes Dan Eller, Rachel Wobschall, Brady Narloch, Tom Marsh,  Elizabeth Wilkinson, Mary K. O’Rourke,  Marty Warren, Tom Tommet, and Carmela Garritano.    In addition, we’ll be treated to a chance to hear a few songs by the Show’d Up Band.   We hope you will join us; light refreshments will be provided.  If you have any questions, please call Julie at 962-5014.  Read on for more information on National Poetry Month.   In case the weather is not cooperating, we will hold the event inside the library in the O’Shaughnessy Room, Room 108.
