In the first year of the Emily Dickinson Poetry Series, 2009-2010, a Gibraltar student was a featured reader. The reading was such a success that we knew we should encourage more student readers. We established one reading each year just for students and the successes have continued. The audiences have been moved by the depth and poignancy of the student poems.

Lauren Bremer, an English teacher at Gibraltar, teaches, coaches, and inspires the students’ poetry. This year, the seventh in the series, many students have already asked to read: Sheridan Ash, Derek Beard, Morgan Bogenschutz, Kara Caldecott, Hope Copiskey, Julia Grant, Madalyn Gray, Riley Haleen, Elizabeth Henry, Alec Hoffman, Alejandra Jauregui, Jon Kordon, Olivia Potter, and Hadley Reetz. Several of these students have read previously in the series and the new readers will insure that the tradition will continue.

So, mark your calendars for Wednesday, February 10 at UUFDC to join in a stimulating evening. The featured readers begin at 7 pm. followed by an open mic. A post-reading reception provides an opportunity to discuss the poetry.
