Poetry Night is a late night excursion into the written word and an opportunity for anyone in the room to become a beatnik emboldened to sing songs or pen poems that delight and excite!

Come out to see big names in poetry and your local favorites read, rhyme, sing, speak and perform their work.

Coffee, wine, and beer are available for purchase at Raue Center’s Café bar.

*Schedule is subject to change. Please like us on Facebook or refer to upcoming events for the most up-to-date listings.


This evening’s Poetry Night will be curated by Linnea Hamilton.


Linnea Hamilton tells wonderfully deep and sentimental stories about her own life experiences that are captivating, thoughtful and at times, a little dark. She grew up in Detroit, but beautiful Crystal Lake has been her home for many years. She’s worked at the Crystal Lake Public Library and is a teacher-librarian for District 47.

Linnea says, “I believe in stories and I believe in poetry because I believe in people. It’s what I love about Open-Mic at the Raue Center!”
