Grassroots Organization Brings Poets From Across the Region to Gather and Perform in Celebration of Underground Literature at the Book Release of This Is Poetry Volume II: The Midwest Poets.
A diverse mix of poets will read their work at the upcoming “Poetry Bash” event on November 7, 2015 at 6 PM at The Blue Heron Inn in La Porte. The Literary Underground (LU), a grassroots organization, is pleased to present a poetry reading that is engaging, fun and unique. The program will feature predominantly regional poets and authors, and will include live music. The three-hour long event is open to the public at no charge. Full cash bar and appetizers will be available from T-Bones Pier 11 located in The Blue Heron Inn.
The Poetry Bash is in celebration of the published second volume in the “This Is Poetry” series, which features The Midwest Poets. Those scheduled to perform are Bill Yarrow (Illinois), Bree, and John Swain (Kentucky), Tim Murray, Michele McDannold, Kayla Greenwell, Joe Gianotti, Julie Demoff-Larson, Marci Rae Johnson, and Krista Cox (Indiana). Music will be performed by the band “Town Called Groove.”
“This is Poetry” is comprised of an online publication of poems, a print book series and live events. The project will ultimately result in an eight-volume collection of poetry, each volume representing poets from a specific geographic region as well as several special collections. This is Poetry, Volume 2—The Midwest Poets can be purchased through the Literary Underground via SQUARE or through Amazon.
