Poem In Your Pocket April 25-26, 2014

Poem In Your Pocket  April 25 - 26, 2014
Poem In Your Pocket is modeled after the original celebration that began in New York over a decade ago.  On Friday andSaturday everyone in the community is encouraged to carry a poem in his/her pocket.  The purpose is to share these poems--which the carrier has selected or written--with as many different people as possible.  This may include friends, family, classmates, teammates, colleagues, the dentist, shop keepers, the mail carrier, your waiter, and so on . . . and if those people have a poem to share back, all the better!
On Friday and Saturday, April 25 and 26 participating businesses in Media are welcoming people to come in and share their poems.  If you read your poem aloud in the business they will give share a discount or a treat.  You will know a business is a Poem In Your Pocket participant because they will display a Poem in Your Pocket Poster.  This event is sponsored by the Rose Tree Media School District and recognized through an official proclamation by the Borough of Media.
