Join the local authors of “The Guys’ Big Book of Poetry” as they read from their work at the monthly Second Sunday program in the Brooks Room at the Bend Public Library. This month’s celebration of the written word will take place Sunday, December 13th, 2009 at 3:00 p.m. An open mic will follow the guest readers.
For the past three years, local poets John Martin, Don Kunz, John Kvapil, Peter Lovering and Larry Jacobs have met monthly to discuss and critique each other’s poetry. About a year ago, they decided to put their work together into one volume and self-published a collection titled “The Guys’ Big Book of Poetry”. The book sells for $15.00 at local independent book stores and contains 75 poems, about 15 from each writer, and is arranged according to themes.
This program is free and open to the public. For more information about this and other programs or ADA information please visit www.dpls.us or call 312-1034.
