Kick off the Hometown Humanities Poetry & Literature series with us at Poetry Open Mic on Monday, March 19 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Meadowlark Public House! Montana’s Poet Laureate, Lowell Jaeger, appointed by Governor Bullock in 2017, starts the night off with a reading of his original poetry. Following that, the mic is open to budding poets, students, and everyone else to share their work in a fun, welcoming atmosphere! Plus, if time allows MDHC will read from its historical collection of Sidney High School poetry. So join us to bring poetry to the community and connect poets with new audiences! This event is free and open to the public. Food and beverages are available for purchase from the Meadowlark. No registration required. However, we encourage anyone interested in reading to contact us ahead of time to schedule a spot. Sponsored by Humanities Montana, an independent, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. For more information and the full schedule of programs for the Poetry & Literature series contact MDHC at (406) 433-3500 or visit mondakheritagecenter.org.
