Dead Poets Reading

Halloween is in two days, and I assume a lot of people will partake in costume parties and events all weekend. But if you’re still unsure what you want to be for Halloween, then maybe the annual Dead Poets Reading will help spark your imagination. Hosted at Anthology New and Used Books at 515 Center Street in Scranton, PA, the event encourages local writers and poetry fans to dress up as their favorite deceased poet and read a few lines. I’ve been going to this event for a few years now, and I’m always impressed how well people pull off costumes of Poe, Plath, Sexton, Kerouac, Frost, Whitman, and a slew of other favorites.

The event starts at 7 p.m. and will also feature prizes for best costume! So, dress up and stop by to share the wise words of one of your favorite poets.

Happy Halloween!
