Keep Houston Press Free

A Measure of Meaning Poetry Reading

A handful of local poets will read their poetry today for A Measure of Meaning Poetry Reading at Heights Ashbury Coffeehouse. Local poet R.T. Castleberry says he and his group have been getting together to workshop their poems for about a year, and finally they’ve gotten brave enough to go public. “We all know each other from the Houston poetry scene,” says Castleberry, adding that they “all have a different style, and a different take.” Add in some healthy sandwiches from Heights Ashbury and some art on the walls, and you’ve got one cultured way to beat back the heat. 3:30 p.m. Sunday. 242 West 19th Street. For information, call 713-529-0198 or visit heightsashbury.com. Free.
Sun., June 26, 3:30 p.m., 2011

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
