The Poets are coming! The Poets are coming!!
We are very excited about the Mass Poetry Festival's move to Salem. If you are planning to come to Salem for the festival on May 13-14, 2011, you will want to be aware of the promotions being offered by some of Salem's savvy accommodations and restaurants.
Visit the Festival web site at MassPoetry.org for the complete list. If you want more options, visit Salem.org and click on STAY or EAT.
