Poetry & Coffee: sunday, november 22nd, 2015 | Poems of Giving, Gratitude, & FOOD!
**POETRY & COFFEE TURNS TWO!** Poetry & Coffee is turning two this November and is celebrating with GIVING, GRATITUDE, and FOOD!  Bring a poem that is about giving and generosity.  Bring a poem about gratitude or one that just makes you feel thankful to be here.  Or bring a poem about food!  Interpret the theme broadly.  There is no wrong poem.  All are welcome!

FOOD DRIVE: In gratitude, Poetry & Coffee will be collecting non-perishable food items on November 22nd at the event. Please bring any non-perishable food items you wish to donate.  We will be donating them to the Community Alliance Initiative food pantry in Ridgewood, NY.

Poetry & Coffee is a simple concept. It's a group of people who get together over food and drinks, each bringing a poem of their choice to read and discuss. **The only rule is that the poem cannot be your own work.** Please bring copies of the poem to share with the group.

We read, we talk. Simple as that. And that is where the simplicity ends, as each Poetry & Coffee gathering takes on a life of its own and consistently becomes magical beyond all expectation.

Tickets are free but you must have one to attend.  Event is from 1pm-4pm.

Two types of tickets:  
Read Poem / Discussion  You bring a poem to read to the group and bring photocopies to share.  You also participate in the discussion.
Discussion Only  You participate in the discussion of the poems.  You can also just listen, if you wish.

If you reserve a ticket and cancel without giving at least 48-hour's notice, you will not be able to reserve tickets to future events.  Our apologies for the severity. We are trying to prevent no-shows from taking the seats from people who genuinely want to attend.

"I have tried to remember throughout that poetry is made by flesh-and-blood human beings. It is a bloody art. It lives on a human scale and thrives when it is passed from hand to hand." - Edward Hirsch

Brunch!  Food and drinks will be available for purchase. Bruch  entrees are about $7. Please purchase at least one item to kindly support our venue but, if you can't, come anyway. YOU are more important than your money.
