The Poetry Circus is a free event for all ages. It includes merry-go-round rides, poetry readings by over 30 well-known poets, tables housing several Los Angeles publishers and literary organizations, interactive poetry performances, haiku balloons, face painting, crafts, and more. This year’s circus features all female poets, in celebration of the 97th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
There’s an awesome line-up of 35 poets reading at the event, including Lynne Thompson at 6:45! Readings begin at 5:45.
