Poetry @ the Hearst

Final Thursday Reading Series continues this month on October 24th with Crystal Gibbins, co-editor of Waters Deep: A Great Lakes Poetry Anthology.

About book: Waters Deep: A Great Lakes Poetry Anthology brings together thirty-five contemporary poets that have been inspired and shaped by the Great Lakes. These poems invite and encourage readers to appreciate and explore more deeply this unique and complex region—the woods, watersheds, grassy plains, hills, bluffs, iron and copper ranges, towns, cities, snow belts and rustbelts. From layers of history and human culture to natural landscapes and built environments, the perspectives and styles of the poets in Waters Deep are as varied and powerful as the lakes themselves. 

Additional info about this series: The Final Thursday Reading Series is back with another great slate of featured regional authors and, as always, an open mic where you can share your own creative writing. Q&A follows each reading. Open mic at 7:15 p.m., featured author at 8:00 p.m.. Free and open to the public. Last Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm, Mae Latta Hall

It’s 1661 and the most famous portrayer of female roles on the London stage is a performer named Kynaston. But after Charles II changes the law to allow women to act, Kynaston’s world is turned upside-down. He loses his livelihood, his lover and his sense of self. Meanwhile, those around him—
including the King’s mistress, Nell Gwynn—rise to stardom.
