The series kicks off on Monday, January 14 at the Mill Street Library with Dufferin County Poet Laureate Harry Posner. Harry is known not only for his eloquent words, but also for the lively way he delivers his poetry. Join the fun 1 p.m. around the fireplace as Harry shares some of his favourite poems and the stories that inspired them.

The program features a different local author or storyteller each month for an afternoon of poetry and stories. Pack a lunch, grab a friend, and meet beside the fire and listen to Words the Orangeville Way.
