Second Thursday Poetry Reading and Open Mic
Featuring the work of Deb Akers
Hosted by Cindy Huyser
Deborah A. ("Deb") Akers, who founded BookWoman's Second Thursday Poetry Reading series, left an indelible mark on the literary scene in Austin. She worked on the staff of Borderlands: Texas Poetry Review for a number of years, and was the long-time editor of the Austin International Poetry Festival youth anthology. Tonight's featured reading will be from Deb Akers's work, including selections from her posthumously-published collection, An Elegant Sufficiency.
A Round Robin-style Open Mic will follow. Bring poems to share.
