You are all cordially invited to the 20th annual Poetry on the Patio on Tuesday, April 24 at Noon! We’ll be outside on the O’Shaughnessy-Frey terrace in weather that has been predicted to be beautiful and in the 70’s! Stop by and hear co-workers and colleagues from across campus read their favorite poems. It is always fun to hear the poems they choose to share and each year we try to bring you new readers.
This year’s program includes poems by Langston Hughes, Richard Wilbur, Seamus Heaney, Philip Levine, William Butler Yeats, Wislawa Szymborska, Ted Kooser, Robert Frost, Margaret Atwood, Michael Hartnett, D. H. Lawrence, and Sarah Kay.
Our readers include Annmarie Thomas, Lon Otto, Tony Curtis, Kerry Kraemer, Peter Gregg, Christina Balsley, Paola Ehrmanntraut, Michael Degnan, Jordan Osterman, Ann Zawistoski, Hayley Graffunder, Marty Warren, Mary Reichardt, Artika Tyner, and host Dan Gjelten.
We hope you will join us! Poetry on the Patio is free and open to all; refreshments will be provided!
