The public is invited to participate in what could be the largest poetry reading in history. The Palm Beach Poetry Festival is hosting this annual open-mic event in partnership with 100 Thousand Poets for Change. This global happening will be taking place at the same time in over 800 venues in 115 countries. Poets and musicians will perform work simultaneously across the planet as a form of literary activism. Attendees are welcome to read their own work or a favorite poem. Between poetry readings, special guest musicians will play songs for peace. Attendees are welcome to bring their own instruments to play or sing along during the closing jam. As in previous years, the event will be photographed and archived by Stanford University. The Bottega’s Happy Hour gastro-pub menu will be available. Must be over 21 years old to attend.
