The Midwest poets series in Kansas City has once again tapped a top flight reader for its reading series. Poet Laureate Charles Simic, Pulitzer Prize winner, MacArthur Fellowship recipient, and winner of the Wallace Stevens Award will be here to read.
Simic has as I count them, something like 28 books (but that is more fingers than have and I may be off by one or two) of which four were released just this year.
The event is at Mabee Theater located at 54th Street and Troost Avenue on the Rockhurst Campus in Kansas City, Missouri. Reception at 6:00 p.m. - Reading starts at 6:30 p.m.
