Pop-up Poetry Potluck Picnic at Powderhorn Park (PPPPPP!)

Event update, Oct. 4: Looks like we'll have a gorgeous, partly sunny (imagine!) day for our party. So looking forward to seeing you!

Exact location in Powderhorn: On 35th St. So. at 12th Ave., a wheelchair-accessible path runs from the street all the way down to the main route around the pond. (There is usually ample parking in this area.) Follow this path until just before you meet the main route and we will be at the single picnic table on the left, under 3 tall trees. (On your right will be a whole bevy of picnic tables, but we are claiming the poets' table). I (Zoë Bird) will be wearing a yellow hat & waving an inflatable fish (or something).

For your potluck inspiration, food & drink we know will make an appearance: cheese, crackers, fruit, chocolate, nuts, apple cider, cake, eating & drinking implements.

Have a wonderful weekend & see you Sunday!APP-MN is delighted to announce that another accomplished poet and wonderful teaching artist is joining our group. Welcome, Claudette Webster! 

We’re celebrating Claudette joining APP-MN with a Pop-up Poetry Potluck Picnic at Powderhorn Park in (PPPPPP!) in South Minneapolis on Sunday, October 6, from 2-4 pm. 

Come share community, tasty snacks, and informal readings of poetry from the project and some of our own writing on memory. If the mood strikes, bring your own or another loved poem on the subject to read to the group!

Please bring a friend, your own chair or blanket to sit on, and a snack, beverage, or dish to share. All are welcome; no contribution to the feast is too small, and no one will be turned away. Link to the Facebook event page here to RSVP and keep apprised of exact location.
