The Improbable Places Poetry Tour

April 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Castle Will Have the Monopoly on Poetry on Tuesday, April 9, 2024.
140 Rantoul St, Beverly

The Improbable Places Poetry Tour, hosted by Colleen Michaels of Montserrat College of Art, features game-related poems for a most unique reading event.  On April 9th, Beverly’s boardgame restaurant and bar, THE CASTLE, will host a night of poetry and play. Doors open at 6:00 for those who want dinner or game time, and the reading begins at 7:00 The reading is free and open to the public.

Started in 2010, the Improbable Places Poetry Tour has brought poetry to unlikely places like bike shops, Laundromats, tattoo parlors, and a power plant on Boston’s north shore.  We will roll the dice on a new season and pack the room Jenga style with players, readers, and poems about the games people play.
