Poetry Reading

Start off National Poetry Month right. Monica Berlin, a working poet and English professor at Knox College, will give a poetry reading and will have a Q&A session about her poetry and the writing process. Free and all are welcome!


Cynthia Gallaher

Are you interested in writing poetry? Join poet Cynthia Gallaher for a discussion of her book "Frugal Poets’ Guide to Life: How to Live a Poetic Life, Even If You Aren’t a Poet." She will read an excerpt from her book and talk about the creative process.
