“COWBOY POETRY” 9th Annual Poetry BBQ of Laura (Riding) Jackson Foundation

Laura Riding Jackson Foundation announces “ Cowboy Poetry” as the headliner for its 9th Annual Poetry and Barbeque on Sunday April 7 at the Vero Beach Heritage Center. This event coincides during National Poetry Month and provides our community an opportunity to hear nationally renowned writers present their poetry and celebrate the Arts, with a Sunday afternoon barbeque and live music.

Our April 7th Annual Event program will be entirely focused on Cowboy Poetry by popular request. The event features three poets and friends from the National Cowboy Poetry Gatheringin Elko, NV: Andy Hedges, of Lubbock, and Joel Nelson, from Alpine, Texas, and Randy Reiman, from Cascade, Montana, all headliners at the Gathering who also give performances throughout the West each year. Joel and Randy will conduct a Teen Writer’s Workshop on Poetry Performance,Saturday, April 6th, and we’ll provide the time for their students to present onstage during Sunday's event. An adult poetry workshop will also be given that Saturday by poet, and educator, Don Morrill, of Tampa.

Poetry and Barbeque has grown each year, drawing hundreds to the event. We’ve changed venues this year and will be downtown at the Vero Heritage Center, with the same great barbeque, music, and wine, with Orchid Island Brewery serving their excellent beer, all for a modest donation of $25.00. As a small non-profit organization with a dedicated board of volunteers, our foundation depends on your generosity to help us bring these great opportunities to our community. Each year, we offer performances, writing workshops, readings, plays, and historical and interdisciplinary literary programs for people of all ages in the belief that exposure to great art and culture will benefit and make our community one of the best places to live in the U.S.
