Prairie Poetry: Four Essential Illinois Poets

April 21st, 2016,
7:00pm to 8:30pm

William Pack tells the remarkable stories of four significant poets while sharing some of their finest writing, including Vachel Lindsay, the Prairie Troubadour; Edgar Lee Masters and his Spoon River Anthology; Carl Sandburg, recognized as the voice of America; and Gwendolyn Brooks, who earned acclaim for her textured portraits of life in Bronzeville.
