Fair Lawn, NJ—The Fair Lawn Arts Council is offering an afternoon of poetry readings on Sunday, April 15, 2018 at the Maurice M. Pine Public Library, 10-01 Fair Lawn Avenue, from 1-3 p.m. 

As in previous years’ successful poetry events,  the Fair Lawn Arts Council invites all age groups to read original or published poetry, but interested poets who wish to participate in the open mic reading should register and submit their poems by April 5, 2018. 

A registration form is available at the library or by contacting Jane Spindel by email at j.trehugr@gmail.com.   Additionally, poetry included in the event will be assembled into a booklet to be distributed at the poetry reading. The program is free and open to the public and will be held in the Fair Lawn Library Reference Room on level D. Light refreshments will be served.

The event is being offered by the Fair Lawn Arts Council, an organization devoted to promoting the arts to all Fair Lawn residents for free or at a nominal cost.  Since its inception five years ago, the Fair Lawn Arts Council has offered programs such as The Gratitude Project, an initiative to engage community members in illustrating what they are grateful for through artwork created on the windows of local businesses; Poetry in Motion, the designing of a mural spontaneously created to music; and A Week in the Life of Fair Lawn, an art expo featuring photographs of the town’s people, places, and things.
