All prose, no cons for annual Earth Day & Poetry event

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 to arrange a preferred time to read and to inform him of their choice of material they intend to read.
