UI CAMPUS NOTES -- IOWA CENTER FOR THE ARTS
POET LANGTON READS JUNE 19 -- Poet Charlie Langton, a graduate of the
University of Iowa Writers' Workshop, will read from his new book, "Keep
Silence, But Speak Out," at 8 p.m. Friday, June 19, in the Prairie
Lights bookstore in downtown Iowa City.
The reading will be broadcast on "Live at Prairie Lights,"
originating on WSUI radio, AM 910.
Langton's poetry has appeared in the Antioch Review, the Iowa Review
and other periodicals, as well as in the anthology "Voices on the
Landscape, Contemporary Iowa Poets." He now lives in Decorah, and
"Keep Silence, But Speak Out," his first book, was published
this year by Iowa's Loess Hills Books.
Poet Sandra McPherson says of the volume, "One just doesn't see
this level of art in most published books. Each poem is marvelous."
And Writers' Workshop faculty member Marvin Bell comments, "Anything
Charlie Langton writes is a true report from inside."
The June 19 reading is free and open to the public.
