Midwest Poet Series reading by Mark Doty
January 31, 2013, 12:00 AM EST
New Letters quarterly and its audio companion, New Letters on the Air, are part of a national literary tradition that serves readers and writers across the world. Started as a publication of the private University of Kansas City in 1934, New Letters continues to seek the best new writing, whether from established writers or from those just ready to be discovered; and it will support those writers, readers and, yes, listeners, who want to experience the joy of writing that both surprises and inspires us all. Part of that tradition includes promoting readings and related events in Kansas city and outlying regions in Missouri and Kansas.
Mark Doty reads as part of the Midwest Poets Series. Mark Doty’s eight books include Fire to Fire: New and Selected Poems, which won the National Book Award for Poetry in 2008. Doty reads at Mabee Theater, Sedgwick Hall, Rockhurst University, 54th Street and Troost, Kansas City, Mo. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
