The "Poetry Under the Stars" Series starts on Tuesday. March 9, at the Longway Planetarium. These events are free and open to the public, with a "meet the poets" segment from 6:30-7 p.m., and then the "poetry reading" from 7-8:30 p.m.
This year's series has three themes–one for each event—starting with Tuesday's "Rebirth/New Beginnings", then "Love" (March 23rd), and finally on April 13th "Faith."
The readers are a combination of poets and UM-Flint faculty, including poets Ibaa Ismail, Joseph Tyler, Jan Worth, and Flint's Grayce Scholt.
"Poetry Under the Stars" is a joint effort between Sloan-Longway and the University of Michigan-Flint's Department of Foreign Languages & Literatures and faculty members from other disciplines, specifically Teddy Robertson (History) and Jan Worth (English).
