Brick Street Poetry hosts the Indiana Dead Poets Celebration

Brick Street Poetry Inc., the not-for-profit  that publishes the  Tipton Poetry Journal and sponsors the monthly series, Poetry on Brick Street, will host the Indiana Dead Poets Celebration from 6- 8 p.m., May 4, in the historic Gothic Chapel at Crown Hill Cemetery, 700 W. 38th St., Indianapolis.

 The celebration, free and open to the public, will honor the work of five Indiana poets – Sarah T. Bolton, James Whitcomb Riley, Meredith Nicholson, Etheridge Knight and Ruth Lilly – who are all buried at Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis. Costumed re-enactors will read the works of these poets. Finger foods from the lifetime of each poet will be served. The poet reading Ruth Lilly’s poetry will not be in costume.
