Venues That Feature Poetry

There are many venues that feature poetry, from bars to museums to university performance spaces. Sometimes there are events on boats or in parks.
We will try to find all these places from large spaces to nooks and crannies.
For now, we will list those venues that appear in our calendar.

Check with them to confirm poetry events and times.
We are also including lists of libraries whether they have poetry readings or not, since these places actually have books that are full of poetry and information about poets.
