Winter Park Harvest Festival, Central Park’s West Meadow

Oct. 26
There Will Be Words Presents Dead Poets Slam This version of the monthly TWBW offers a chance for local lit nerds to pay homage to their beloved late poets, as guests are invited to read poems in full costume with accompanying props. No doubt you’ll see a few tribute ’staches – whether it’s a macabre Poe or an unruly Twain – from the gentlemen, while the ladies might take a lyrical approach as Sara Teasdale or go a bit darker with stanzas by Sylvia Plath. We’ll give big ups to anyone who can pull off a Whitman beard, and we’d be pretty impressed to see someone show up in a full-on Emerson three-piece suit. At the very least, light a cig and say your Cummings. 9:30 pm Saturday; Stardust Video & Coffee, 1842 E. Winter Park Road; free; 407-623-3393; stardustie.com.
