We celebrate National Poetry Month on this week's KPR Presents, with more than 20 of today's best Kansas poets. These poets and their poems are featured in Begin Again: 150 Kansas Poems, a sesquicentennial collection edited by Kansas Poet Laureate Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg. We'll also hear an original poem set to music by singer-songwriter Kelley Hunt. Readings from Begin Again were recorded at the Lawrence Jewish Community Center.
You can hear more than 30 of the Begin Again poets at an upcoming reading at Emporia State University, 7 p.m., Saturday, April 14th.
Tune in to KPR Presents at 8 p.m. Sunday evenings on Kansas Public Radio, and 1 p.m. Sunday afternoons on KPR-2.
