To cooperate in this promotion of all things poetic, SOMOS is hosting twelve evenings of poetry readings by Taos poets – along with a few regional poets. This series has been curated by Taos poet and co-editor of Taos Journal of International Poetry & Art, Veronica Golos.
“Taos and the surrounding area have a plethora of amazing poets, award winning, spoken word, poets with books. I choose with a number of things in mind, but primarily variety: we have young poets, firmly established poets, newer poets, formal poets and experimental poets, poets reading Shakespeare, poets reading their own translations, etc. There are poets from different Native communities, Asian poets, female and male poets, poets from Taos and poets from Santa Fe. We hope that the Taos community will be generous with their attendance, their donations, and will support poets by buying their books! It has been a great pleasure working with SOMOS curating this event.” – Veronica Golos
All readings are at the SOMOS Salon (233 Paseo del Pueblo Sur, Taos) except for the first evening, April 1st, held at Mabel Dodge Luhan Conference Room. All evening readings are at 7:00pm. (Sunday at 3:00pm) These are free events – although donations to SOMOS are always appreciated! We would like to encourage audience members to buy books from the poets.
Here’s a poster Webb Design created to advertise the readings that shows the complete schedule.
