Think more poetry festival than traditional reading. Poetry Asylum has taken over and we're literally blowing off the walls! This year's Great Twin Cities Poetry Read will have close to 55 poets in a poet-a-thon in the main bookstore, and in the theatre, we'll have an eclectic assortment of literary groups handing out tons of fun!! 

MOTIONPOEMS [http://motionpoems.org/] will be there screening their extraordinary 8th season, a master tarot card reader, Mankato-based group FearNOLit [http://www.fearnolit.com/] & representatives from MN Prison Writing Workshop [MPWW], Free Black Dirt & Mizna.

Moon Palace will also be celebrating National Independent Bookstore Day and serving up delicious pizzas, sandwiches & drinks all day! Come peruse their shelves bursting with gorgeous books, listen to some kickass poetry, and mingle to your heart's content!
