The Krewe d’ Poet, a local group of poets and poetry lovers, celebrated Twelfth Night, traditionally the end of the Christmas season. The inaugural event began with a walk through many of the places associated with scenes from the iconic Natchitoches movie, Steel Magnolias. The event then moved to the Storybrew Café on Front St for an evening of poetry, king cake and coffee. Attendees were invited to come dressed as their favorite poet, resulting in an eclectic Krewe that ranged from Sylvia Plath to Edward DeVere, the 17th Duke of Oxford, Audrey Lord and Anne Sexton.
The Krewe d’ Poet is a fun group of people with a common interest in poetry and writing. Their next meeting will be Thursday, February 16 for Open Mic Night.
