University Libraries, the Gwendolyn Brooks Cultural Center, the English and Journalism Department, and the Office of the President are sponsoring a poetry reading celebrating African American poetry. The reading will take place Wednesday, February 15, 2012 from Noon to 1:00 p.m. in the Gwendolyn Brooks Cultural Center.

Accordingly, we are looking for persons to read poetry, either their own poetry or poetry by African American poets. If you are interested in reading, we are interested in hearing from you.

Please contact William Thompson at wa-thompson@wiu.edu if you want to read. Let him know what you want to read and approximately how much time you estimate it may take to read it.
