KINGMAN – Bring out your inner Robert Frost, Edgar Allan Poe or Emily Dickinson to the Mohave County Library-Kingman, 3269 N. Burbank St., for a poetry reading from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Edward Shuler, a Kingman resident, reached out to the library to start the poetry readings again after the library stopped doing them back in July.

“If there’s enough attendance, then the readings will be once a month and moved to during the week when the library isn’t so busy,” Shuler said.

All types of poems are welcomed to the reading, including slam poetry with the author expressing themselves in an intense and passionate matter, although it’s not a slam poetry event, Shuler said. All ages can participate in the poetry reading.

Shuler also welcomes cowboy poetry with poems written by cowboys after a day of work. It has grown out of the tradition when they would sit around a campfire and use poetry as a way of entertainment.

For more information about the poetry event, contact Edward Shuler at 775-209-2077 or the Kingman Library at 928-692-2665.
