Poetry Book Club




If you would like to join our discussion, RSVP HERE! Once you RSVP we will send the meeting link to the email you provide. 


Once upon a midnight dreary but maybe not so weak or weary / Come discuss your favorite stanzas thanks to WORD Bookstores / Sonnets, free verse, even ballads shall be sampled, savored, praised, and challenged / Whatever your taste, join us if poetry you do adore.

WORD's Poetry Book Club covers all books of verse, from classics to new releases (with an emphasis on more recent collections). No prior practice reading poetry? No problem! This group is for anyone with an interest to meet, discuss, and shape our tastes together.



Book group selections are 10% off when purchased at WORD. 




Ben Kulakofsky's love of the written word unsurprisingly began with Poe, but his tastes have evolved over the last 16 years. When he's not reading the latest chapbook, he can be found camping and hiking with friends. He has worked for several years as a copywriter and published a handful of pieces of his own writing.
