Youth Hoot (The Hoot)

  • Cafe Espresso 738 Islington Street Portsmouth, NH, 03801 United States (map)

It's Our Fifth Annual Youth Hoot! Students from several area schools will join us as our January Featured Readers.

One of the PPLP's Board's long term goals is to encourage poetry writing and performance by young people. They're our poetic future. What better way than to provide a venue? If you've attended our Youth Hoot previously, you have seen and heard outstanding young poets. Collectively, our young poets will be our Featured Readers.

This is typically one of our most well attended Hoots. Plan to come a few minutes early for good seating...and to enjoy one of Dave Hadwen's fine meals...And bring a poem to share after the break. Doors open at 6:00 pm.
