Celebrating Kirby Congdon, Key West’s first Poet Laureate

A Celebration of Poetry!

Join us at The Studios of Key West when The Key West Poetry Guild names Key West’s very first Poet Laureate, long-time Key West resident Kirby Congdon.

We’ll kick off the celebration with a complimentary champagne toast, followed by a reading of the Proclamation by Key West Commissioner Jimmy Weekley.

The festivities continue as Congdon reads from his newly published book Sixty Years of Poetry, followed by members of The Key West Poetry Guild reading and sharing some of their work.
