MEET A POET: MARY BLOCK AND ARNALDO BATISTA

Presented in partnership with O,Miami Poetry Festival
In celebration of National Poetry Month, South Florida-based poets are available to the public at Books & Books Coral Gables throughout the month of April for two alternating micro-residency engagements:
(1) Check out a Poet, modeled on the Human Library, wherein members of the general public are invited to spend 15 minutes of one-on-one time with a local poet—hear them read, ask them questions, and develop their own poems under the guidance of a professional.
(2) Poems to Order, where poets in residence produce original poems on the spot for bookstore patrons upon request.
