North Carolina Poet Laureate Jaki Shelton Green reads at Western Carolina University Wednesday, October 30th, at 7:30 p.m.

North Carolina Poet Laureate Jaki Shelton Green will be reading at Western Carolina University next Wednesday evening, October 30th, at 7:30, in Blue Ridge Conference Room A. I've sent out press releases and WCU publicity venues have the information, but I know that kind of thing can be very easy to miss. This is a rare opportunity to hear a sitting poet laureate--they often don't make it this far west--and Jaki's poetry is accessible and enjoyable. Jaki is also North Carolina's first African-American poet laureate and only our third female poet laureate.  Parking on WCU's campus can be a bit dicy, but there are pay lots near McKee, behind the University Center, and behind Reid Gym.
