POETS ON THE HALF SHELL

Poets on the Half Shell celebrates poetry as necessary part of life, like death, taxes and laughter.

You can have poetry on the half shell at a dive bar, a fancy bar, your backyard, at the beach, in the mountains…basically anywhere you go.

Readings are hosted by Carlye Archibeque and Richard Modiano and take place roughly the third Sunday of every month.
