Mark your calendar, the Known by Heart poetry event will take place May 9, 2012, 7 pm, at the Hamline Midway library, 1558 W. Minnehaha Ave., St. Paul. (Thanks to the Friends of the St. Paul Public Library).
And the rooster? The rooster was a visitor on my porch one day during my stay at the Studios of Key West last November, where I got started on some of the poems I’ll be presenting from memory in May. That rooster is both the subject and a mnemonic device for one of the poems.
The event is being sponsored by Friends of the St. Paul Public Library and made possible by a 2011 grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board (Here’s the official language on that:
Naomi Cohn is a fiscal year 2011 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible in part by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. )
Hope you can be there
