Group Name & Location: Hartlepool PoaP, Hartlepool Central Library
Event Date: 2nd FEB 2017
Summary: Our February meeting coincided with Harry Potter Book Night so it was a little hectic in the library and we were ousted from our usual meeting room to make way for 40 or so Potter, Snape, and Hermione lookalikes. We did have one or two magic poems thrown in to the mix though which added some extra sparkle to our usual eclectic mix of poetry. We were happy to see some familiar faces back in the group and welcomed in some new ones too, so our little band was back up to a healthy 10. Five readers and five listeners, and as always some lively responses to the poetry.
Our next meeting being March we have gone for March Hares and Madness as our theme – as usual this is open to personal interpretation, or can be ignored entirely!
Date of next event: 2nd March 4pm
