Talking Dead: Reading Late Poets Who Inspire

Celebrate National Poetry Month and the dead poets who inspire you at 7 p.m. in the Popular Library Lounge at the Main Library. Join Matt Hart—editor-in-chief of Forklift, Ohio: A Journal of Poetry, Cooking & Light Industrial Safety, and chair of the Department of Liberal Arts, Art Academy of Cincinnati—for our open mic session. Read a poem from a dead poet who has inspired your work, along with one or two of your own poems that reflect that inspiration. Sign-up for the open mic session begins at 6:30 p.m.
