Lorain Public Library Open Mic Night
February 6 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
In 2020, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine signed House Bill 325, which officially designates Feb. 18, the birthday of the Nobel-prize-winning author, as Toni Morrison Day in Ohio.
Morrison was born and raised in Lorain and worked for Lorain Public Library System for a short time until she was fired for spending time reading the books she was meant to be shelving.
The public in encouraged to attend a number of free programs at the Main Library, 351 W. Sixth St. in downtown Lorain.
Open Mic event will be from 6-7:30 p.m., Feb. 6. Local poets are welcome to perform their original poems. The winners of library’s Toni Morrison Poetry Contest will be announced. Preregistration required.
