Latter library is collaborating with the Audubon Zoo on Thurs Nov 12 at 6pm to host "Poetry After Dark"
Hop on the zoo's train for a free ride to the Louisiana Swamp Exhibit. Poetry readings will begin at 6 pm followed by book signings by Mark Doty and Nevada Barr at 7pm. Books will be available for sale by the Garden District Book Shop. During the evening, you'll enjoy the sounds of a jazz trio along with free soft drinks, wine and cheese. This free event is a kickoff for "The Language of Conservation", an initiative made possible through a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services to incorporate poetry installations throughout the Audubon Zoo.
