Kathryn Cowles reads her poem "This is a Personal Poem," during the Room Full of Sisters Women's History Month event at the Hilton Garden Inn in Auburn in 2017.

A year after its return from a three-year hiatus, the annual Room Full of Sisters is on the move again.

This year, the event will take place at Auburn Public Theater, 8 Exchange St., Auburn. The downtown theater took over organizing the event last year, but held it at the Hilton Garden Inn.

This year's Room Full of Sisters will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 6.

The forum started in 1993, inspired by a Mona Lake Jones poem: "Room full of sisters like jewels in a crown ... vanilla, cinnamon and dark chocolate brown." It gives women of diverse ages, ethnic backgrounds and professions a place to gather in celebration during Women's History Month. 

"It gives women the opportunity to hit the pause button and honor themselves as women," Auburn Public Theater Artistic Director Angela Daddabbo told The Citizen last year.

This year's Room Full of Sisters will include a marketplace, a luncheon, and dance, music, poetry and more on the theater's stages. Community members will be able to share their words in Stage Right.

Tickets to the event are $40.
