Haverhill’s River Bards are a group of local poets with a passion for shining a light on poetry, prose, spoken word, and other literary arts! Twice a year the Bards present a once a month poetry series, and this season will be at a new location: HC Media at Harbor Place! These poetry series feature readings by fantastic published poets, followed by open mic readings. These events are family-friendly and open to the public.At 7:00 PM, our featured poet kicks off the night with a reading, followed by open mic time (sign-ups are first come first served) until everyonehas had a chance to read. The event wraps up no later than 9:00 PM. Makesure to get these dates on your calendar, and we’ll look forward to seeing you there! The November 1st featured poet is a well-known Merrimack Valley poet, Jim Knowles. Knowles is the author of TAHKI, Grey Beret, Peculiar Pair of Dice, and Nighthawks.
