CANCELED: National Poetry Month Celebration With Max Garland


Join MCPL Wausau and the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets for a National Poetry Month celebration with award-winning writer Max Garland, and bring your own poems for an open mic session! 

Garland, who served as the state's Poet Laureate in 2013-2014, will read a selection of poems pulled from his three books and chapbook, including his most recent book, "The Word We Used for It," which won the 2017-18 Brittingham Poetry Prize. Following Garland's reading and a Q&A, we'll open up the floor for anyone to share their own poems as well! Garland also will be available to sign copies of his books.

Free and open to the public, no registration required. Call 715-261-7230 for more information. 

  • CANCELED: Thu., 4/23/20, 5:30–7:30 p.m. @ MCPL Wausau
