Book Swap Happy Hour

SLPC Member Appreciation Event

February 23, 2023 @ 5:00 pm 7:00 pm


This event will be held in-person at Rockwell Beer Co, in their indoor Brewhouse.

Join us as we celebrate YOU – our outstanding members who have helped make Saint Louis Poetry Center what it is today. The work we do to support poets and champion the power of poetry isn’t possible without you. We’ve got some fun things planned for this Member Appreciation event. Please join us!


We are thanking Saint Louis Poetry Center members with special members-only happy hour. Come out to Rockwell Beer Co. in the Grove, mix and mingle with fellow members and poets, and enjoy great drinks and great conversation. This special evening features:

  • Complimentary open bar
  • Limited-edition SLPC tote bag for members
  • Attendance prizes
  • A book swap

We’ve combined the best of two worlds – sharing favorite books, and happy hour! Participation in the book swap is completely optional. But if you are looking to lighten your bookshelves, discover a new poet, share a book recommendation, or just gab with other book lovers, this is your chance.

Give a book, get a book!

  • Bring 1 to 3 books to swap
  • Poetry and poetry-adjacent books preferred but not required
  • Upon arrival, leave a short note inside the books (SLPC will provide cards for this)
  • Pair up with fellow members and swap books
  • Any leftover books will be donated to SLPC’s library at High Low
  • You do not need to participate in the book swap to attend the event

The member appreciation happy hour is for all Saint Louis Poetry Center members. Event registration is encouraged but not required. Interested in joining? Time to renew? You can become a member or renew your membership anytime by visiting the membership page on our website.

Bring a friend!

Introduce your friends to the Saint Louis Poetry Center community. Have them sign up to become a member at the event and both of you will be entered into our happy hour raffle!


Conveniently situated near the entrance to The Grove in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood, Rockwell Beer Co’s flagship location is hard to miss. Inside a facade built out of modified shipping containers you’ll find the heart of their operation: a 15-barrel industrial brewhouse and tasting room showcasing an ever-evolving lineup of Rockwell’s beers, a robust selection of seasonal cocktails and wines, and laid-back food from brassWELL by Niche.
