The Carriage House Poetry Series is currently in its twelfth year at the Kuran Arts Center, an historic Gothic Revival structure that was once a 19th century carriage house, hence the name of the series. The March 16th reading is free and open to the public. An open mic will follow the featured performance and audience members are invited to read a poem by a famous poet or one of their own.
