Starting Today: 100 Poems For Obama's First 100 Days Reading
From the original website: "The day before the inauguration we sent out a call to poets we admire to write poems that respond, however loosely, to the presidency, the nation, the government or the current political climate. More than one hundred American poets responded immediately. The first 100 poets were each assigned one of President Obama’s first hundred days in office, and each will write a poem reflecting on the state of the nation and the world on that day."
Reading their work from the anthology tonight are esteemed Illinois poets Josh Corey, Chris Green, John Beers, Joahn Gallaher, Patrick Culliton, Tony Triglio, and Cin Salach
