This is an amazing poetry week WBEZ-Chicago! Thank you so much for selecting my poem. In July, I had a poetry reading at their station, promoting "Wherever I'm At: An Anthology of Chicago Poetry".
This is a joint publishing project of After Hours Press, the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame, and Third World Press.
"Wherever I'm At" is a collection of poems & art by more than 150 artists. Each work has its own Chicago themes. Including poets like (from their website) Li-Young Lee, Elizabeth Alexander, Stuart Dybek, Angela Jackson, Tyehimba Jess, Sandra Cisneros, Campbell McGrath, Maxine Chernoff, Patricia Smith, Edward Hirsch, Kathleen Rooney, Luis Alberto Urrea, Emily Jungmin Yoon, Luis J. Rodriguez, Elise Paschen, Sterling Plumpp, Marianne Boruch, Haki R. Madhubuti, Rachel DeWoskin, Ed Roberson, Tara Betts, Reginald Gibbons….
My poem, "Lake Michigan" , will be broadcasted between their program transitions along with other featured poets. I am so honored. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity.
WBEZ91.5 is Chicago’s NPR station. Their office is located at the beautiful Navy Pier! It was a perfect day to walk by the lake and river side with a gelato!
