Poetry in the Park

Please join us for an outdoor, relaxing, autumn poetry reading featuring Native American poets: Kimberly Blaeser (UWM Professor of English and current Wisconsin Poet Laureate), Franklin K.R. Cline (UWM Creative Writing PhD student and instructor), and b: william bearhart (MFA student at the Institute of American Indian Arts).

Bring your own blankets, chairs, beverages, and snacks. The event will begin at 1:00 and last for 75 minutes or so, but the park is free and open to the public — so plan to have yourself a Sunday with us! (The Packers have a bye that week…!) We’ll gather near the Solomon Juneau statue overlooking Lake Michigan (near Prospect and Kilbourn Avenues). Rain or shine.

Sunday, October 25, 1:00 p.m. – 2:15 p.m. at Juneau Park (801 N Lincoln Memorial Dr)
