Never Stop Asking for Poems: A Poetry Reading by Michael Czarnecki
May 1 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Join poet, oral memoirist, and small press publisher Michael Czarnecki for an afternoon poetry reading. Michael founded FootHills Publishing in 1986; since then, FootHills has released over 400 chapbooks and books of poetry. In 1996 Michael gave up other work to devote his time and life to poetry, and for the last twenty years he has made his living solely through the creative word. Since then he has given hundreds of featured readings throughout the country.
Michael has published 12 books, including “Never Stop Asking for Poems” and a haibun account, “Twenty Days on Route 20,” which chronicled his journey across America on US 20, from Boston to Newport, OR, the longest road in the country. When not out on the poetic road Michael lives on his 50 acre homestead in upstate NY.
Admission is free and all are welcome to attend. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Chetco Library.
