People can explore the roots of their literary and tree-planting tastes during “Earth Day & Poetry” event at the OU-C Stevenson Center on April 19.
The event includes poetry readings, with individuals encouraged to stop by and read their favorite poems, a picnic-style lunch, live music and tree seedlings for planting. The Quinn Library and the OU-C Environmental Club are sponsoring the extravaganza.
The picnic begins at noon and the poetry session at 1:30 p.m. OU-C English faculty member Stephen Morrow will serve as the emcee for the poetry portion of the day’s activities.
“I invite students to read their own poems, too. I would love to see a mixture of published and personal work,” Morrow said.
Interested readers can email Morrow at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a preferred time to read and to inform him of their choice of material they intend to read.
