From 2005 to 2009 the River Junction Poets hosted Poets Birthday Readings at the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Saginaw (MI) to read and discuss poets and poetry. Events were planned around the birthdays of poets; the bookstore mentioned our events in its monthly Newsletter. When we sent a birthday card to the poet we celebrated, we included the Newsletter that mentioned the event. Several of those poets responded with Thank You notes. This blog serves an ongoing interest in poets and poetry.
