If yer in and about KC on 4/1:
Celebrate the kickoff of National Poetry Month by joining us for a reading of poetry about Kansas City at the beautiful, downtown Ilus Davis Park!
Spartan Press is so delighted to release “Finding Zen in Cow Town,” a book featuring the poems of thirty poets who live in and around Kansas City. This unique collection features poems by former Kansas Poet Laureate, Denise Low; co-founder of the Latino Writers Collective*, Jose Faus; inaugural Poet Laureate of 18th and Vine, Glenn North; and many more spoken word and poetry voices in our community.
It’s so moving to read poems which talk about local BBQ joints and sports teams, major intersections and highways, neighborhoods, public figures and the shared history of Kansas City citizens; this book is a true-blue dedication to our home, our City of Fountains, our Cowtown.
