A Victorian Poetry Slam? Sounds intriguing doesn’t it? It takes place at the historic James J. Hill house next Tuesday, February 14th. It begins at 7pm and you can purchase tickets on their website. Most of the events at the Hill house do fill up, so I suggest you make your reservations soon if you plan to attend.
Celebrate Valentine’s Day the old-fashioned way by enjoying classic 19th century poetry in the James J. Hill House drawing room. Actors Craig Johnson, Laura Salveson and Ann Daly, wearing 1890s eveningwear, will perform a wide range of humorous and stirring poems by Dickinson, Poe, Longfellow, Browning and more dealing with love, romance, temperance, sports and war—even poems about James J. Hill! Audience members are also invited to bring a short Victorian poem to read aloud throughout the evening.
