Reasons to go to…Tucson

September 24, 2014

Tucson, ArizonaAs you’re planning your getaway from the short, dark days of winter, consider Tucson, Arizona, where you’ll find the University of Arizona Poetry Center. Founded in 1960, the Center has nearly 70,000 items related to poetry in its collection.

“An internationally renowned poetry library, the Poetry Center sponsors numerous University and community programs, including readings and lectures, classes and workshops, discussion groups, symposia, writing residencies, poets-in-the-schools, poets-in-the-prisons, contests, exhibitions, and online resources, including standards-based poetry curricula. An area of special emphasis within the College of Humanities, the Poetry Center is open and fully accessible to the public.”

If you’re fortunate enough to get there by December 10, 2014, be sure to take in “Lie Quietly: New Works of Karen Green.” An artist, poet and the author of Bough Down, Karen Green melds language and image into haunting and provocative artworks.
