“I know Durant’s way down here on the Red, but if anyone’s straying this
far south Ron Wallace (That’s me) will be reading some new poems at the
Market Square stage off First and Main Street in Durant at 3:00 PM this
Saturday the 25th.”
Ken Hada at Full Circle Book Store in Oklahoma City at 2 p.m. on Sunday, and Carol Hamilton and lots of others are reading in 15-minute sessions at a Readathon and celebration at the Ralph Ellison Library in Oklahoma City also on Saturday the 25th. Wherever you are, lots to do for Poetry Month.
