Beth Ann Fennelly

Wine and cheese and poets happy to be together, Pat, Mary, Ralph and Bren crossed town to Rockhurst to the third of the MidWest Poets Series. We gathered Michael into our circle and listened as Beth Ann Fennelly told stories and recited from her collection.  Stories about love and children and mothers (and childbirth) and relationships spiced with memories of romance real and imagined. I checked my timepiece to confirm, wondering how the hour could possibly have gone by so quickly. You'll want to add this poet to your must read list.

February Meeting

The next KC Metro Verse meeting is Tuesday, February 9th at 6:00pm. We will be meeting at The Writers Place and will continue to meet there for our meetings. The Writers Place is not charging us to use the facility; however, there will be a donations basket passed around. Please consider giving a buck or two each time we meet. It is expensive to run their facility, and they are going to be promoting our group on their calendar, website, etc. Donations will be a nice gesture on our part.
