Waking up to poetry

Our guest speaker this Sunday, July 18, will be storyteller Tony Toledo, a longtime friend of the Northshore UU Church. The topic of his presentation will be “This Poem Will Wake You Up!”

For the past two years Tony has been hosting “Speak Up!”, a Wednesday evening gathering of poets, activists, storytellers, and comedians at Tatiana’s in Lynn. If you have a Facebook account, you can learn more here.

Lots of fine poets have graced the stage at Tatiana’s. These poets have reawakened a fondness for poetry that Tony did not even know he had. Tony will share what a finely crafted poem does to him, and maybe he will be able to convince a few of the Wednesday night poets to read this Sunday.

The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by coffee and fellowship at 11:30. Our regular Sunday services will resume on Sunday, September 12, at which time our Religious Education Program and child care will once again be offered.
