Katharine Lee Bates Community Poetry Fest
August 12 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pmFREE
Born in Falmouth, Katharine Lee Bates wrote “America the Beautiful” in 1893, as well as many other works. She celebrated her life in Falmouth throughout her writings and we honor her memory by allowing others to create original pieces of poetry. This 20th annual celebration of her life and works allows local schoolchildren and adults to submit their original works in her honor. There will be judging, and winners will be informed well in advance of the program. The poetry readings will be followed by a celebration of her 160th birthday around her statue on the library lawn. The public is invited to join in singing “America the Beautiful” and “Happy Birthday” and eat birthday cake donated by Deb and Liam Maguire. The singing will begin about 5:00 pm. This event is free and open to all!
