Poetry Bookclub to start in November at Boulder Book Store

Living Poets Society Inaugural Meeting

Fall isn't the only thing in the air this November—so is poetry! The newly formed Living Poets Society poetry bookclub will meet on the second Tuesday of each month at the Boulder Book Store, and will focus predominantly on contemporary, living poets. Our first pick will be Delights & Shadows by Ted Kooser. All are welcome, so pick up a copy and join us for our kick-off meeting.

Kooser, former U.S. Poet Laureate and Iowa native, is the author of ten collections of poetry, and is the recipient of a Pushcart Prize. He has been widely praised for his plainspoken style, his gift for metaphor, and his quiet discoveries of beauty in ordinary things.

The meeting will be a moderated discussion on the book and will include audio of the author reading his work. Sorry, the author will not be present, but there will be refreshments. The first meeting of the Living Poets Society bookclub will be on Tuesday, November 13, 2007 at 6:30pm in the Upper North Room of the Boulder Book Store, 1107 Pearl Street, Boulder, CO.
