Poetry Reading

April 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

Celebrate National Poetry Month by attending a poetry reading at the City Museum. On Saturday, April 6th, members of the Burn Thompson Writing Group will read original works sure to entertain and inspire. This is a free event with coffee, tea, and cookies provided.

 

The Burn Thompson Writing Group is named in honor of writer and long-time group member Burn Thompson. Thompson came to Juneau in the late 1980’s from Roanoke, Virginia and took charge of a flagging writing group, nursing it back to health. Thompson had an undergraduate degree in physics and graduate degrees in creative writing, a rare mix.

 

The group was named in her honor after her death in October 2013. Members of the Burn Thompson Writing Group meet bimonthly to read and critique their work. During meetings, writers share their work and offer each other gentle critiques. The group is open to the public.
