At a recent poetry reading at Culture Club Art Gallery in Winnsboro, Joe Dan Boyd entertained the room with his colorful readings. He recited two poems by Odena Brannam and Lucy Germany, former members of the Winnsboro Live Poets Society (WLPS).

WLPS holds the readings every third Friday at 6 p.m. Guests are invited to read their own or others’ poems, songs, or other creative writing or just listen and are welcome to bring their own beverages.

The Culture Club has a bookstore onsite and galleries of art by local and famous artists. They are located at 107 E. Elm at one end of the historic downtown cultural arts district. For more information, call (903) 347-6036,
