Celebrate two years of Poetry at the Parliament Jan. 24

Terrible twos? Try terrific twos.

Poetry at The Parliament is turning two years old, and there’s going to be a celebration. From 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Jan. 24 at The Parliament, 116 E. King St., York, enjoy a featured reading by Missi McLaren, plus an open mic, refreshments and snacks.

The first-ever poetry event held at The Parliament was a reading by McLaren, intended to be a one-time thing. But it was so successful that the venue decided to keep having poetry events.¬†According to the event’s Facebook page, ¬†”We brought in new and seasoned poets for an open mic and became the first uncensored safe haven for poets to come in and share openly. What grew out of this event is a true community of poets and other artists meeting and supporting each other. We’ve all become the writer, the teacher, the reader and everything in between.”

Take the chill off a late-January evening with some fiery poetry, but the folks at The Parliament advise you to find a babysitter for the kiddos — Poetry at The Parliament is uncensored and unabashed.
