Montserrat’s Improbable Places Poetry Tour – Winfrey’s Chocolates

October 30, 2013

Montserrat’s most recent Improbable Places Poetry Tour stop on Oct. 22 was at Winfrey’s Fudge and Chocolates at 115 Cabot Street in Beverly, MA.

Things may have gone better for Agustus Gloop and Veruca Salt if Willy Wonka had employed poets. This month’s tour stop celebrated the chewy center of a poem, the cream and butter of language, a sweet tooth and a taffy pull. Poems were hand dipped, dusted in sugar and left you satisfied. 

The Tour is Montserrat’s way of bringing together student writers, local poets, area businesses and enthusiastic listeners to celebrate the power of poetry and community. At each tour stop a new venue and theme is selected. Click here to learn more!
