Jackson Library Cowboy Poetry Night

Nat Cowboy Poetry Week at libraryCowboy Poetry Round-Up

Jackson County Public Library

Tuesday, April 21, 2015, 6:00 p.m.

2929 Green St. Marianna FL

Throughout the history of the American West and Florida in particular, cowboy poets have played an important role in preserving western heritage and the culture of Florida through oral and written poetry. The long tradition and endearing qualities of these stories and poems demonstrate that cowboy poetry is a cherished Florida tradition.

On Tuesday evening, April 21, the Jackson County Public Library presents a free family event: Cowboy Poetry Round-Up.

Ted Land, a published cowboy poet and associate of Florida’s 101-year-old Cowboy Poet “Lariat” Carl Sharp, will share Florida cowboy history, cowboy tales, and cowboy poetry.

Professional musician Wayne Ellis and his sons Isaac and Ethan will provide the music.

Come join us at the Marianna Branch on Green St. in Marianna. Bring the entire family and wear your “western-wear” if you like. We’ll share light refreshments.
