I am honored to be reading with this fine collection of poets from across Ohio. This performance, recognizing and honoring the Cuyahoga River, will begin at 4 p.m. sharp in the Wick Poetry Park (located by the Wick Poetry Center, 126 S. Lincoln Street, Kent). Parking is available across the street in the parking lot of the Kent State Fashion Museum. In case of rain, we'll be gathering at the Wick Poetry Center.
This event will also feature the release of the new Resurrection River Poems anthology. The cover design and art, shown in the photograph above, is by Rachel Bishop and Audrey Bishop. Many, many, thanks to RC Wilson, who has deftly organized both the anthology and the reading, and who has given me the opportunity to be a part of both.
There will be an Opening Reception for River Stanzas at the Kent State Downtown Art Gallery, 141 E. Main Street, Kent, following the reading. The Opening Reception is from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Please join us for a truly remarkable afternoon of poetry!
