Open Mic Poetry Night will provide the perfect venue to read poetry and share in the love of the spoken word. The event is co-sponsored by the Putnam County Public Library and will be April 7 at the Blue Door Cafe, 24 S. Indiana St.
Joe Heithaus will take the lead and give a reading of his own poetry before turning host for the night. The point of open mic night -- besides celebrating National Poetry Month -- is that no matter how good or bad the poetry, everyone is welcome up on stage.
Residents are invited to read a favorite poem, even if not a poet.
Sign-up will begin at 6:30 p.m. for those who want to take the stage. Readings will begin at 7 p.m.
Don't be shy and bring friends. It's free, it's at the Blue Door, and it's bound to be a good time.
