“Join us for a Poem Town St. Johnsbury Celebration featuring the Myra Flynn Band and special guest Reuben Jackson.From March 17 to April 17 a selection of words related to this year’s PoemTown St. Johnsbury theme, Up from the Roots, will be posted on a window at 67 Eastern Avenue in St. Johnsbury and on posters available in several downtown locations. Participants are invited to use some of the posted words to build phrases or lines of poetry, which they can then submit toward the creation of a community poem.
The final poem, made of community contributions, will be arranged by poet, jazz scholar, teacher, and former VPR host Reuben Jackson, who will then read the composition at a music and poetry event at Catamount ArtPort on Saturday, April 30th featuring the Myra Flynn Band.”
