The Cool Women poets, Gretna Wilkerson, Lois Harrod, Penelope Scambly Schott, Judy, Michaels, Maxine Susman, Juditha Dowd, Eloise Bruce, Betty Lies, Joyce Lott, each read their own poem in a sequence. They never know what the previous poet will be reading, all that is known is a topic and the order in which they will read. Together and separately, they have published 56 books, been married 16 times, had 19 children and 17 grandchildren. This makes for a lot of good poetry! Open mic follows.
