Sharon Springs Poetry Festival -- Dinner with the Poets
Klinkhart Hall Arts Center, Inc. is proud to present the second Sharon Springs Poetry Festival, in Sharon Springs, NY October 18-20, 2018.

This year's events will begin with a fundraiser for the Festival: Dinner with the Poets at the American Hotel on Thursday October 18 at 6:30 PM. Attendees will be able to meet the poets in advance of the public events, and each of the visiting poets -- Billy Collins, Tracy K. Smith, and  Anne Waldman -- will offer a special reading from their work.

The menu for the event will be a special four course meal:  soup, salad, main course, and dessert. Seating will be "family style." Cash bar will be available.

Thanks to the generosity of the American Hotel, 100% of your ticket purchase will go to support the Poetry Festival.
