The Depot, 200 South Jones, will host former Norman resident Robin Schultz at its Second Sunday Poetry series on November 9 at 2:00 pm. There is no charge for admission. The public is invited to attend.
While living in Norman Schultz taught English at the University of Oklahoma and at Rose State College. Two books of his poetry were published by Point Riders Press in Norman during that time. He was prominent in the local poetry scene.
While teaching at OU, Schultz founded Poetry Around, which began as mimeographed sheets of original poetry and evolved into a publishing company which published chap books featuring poets state-wide. At Rose State he was one of the original Poetry at Rose readers.
After a move to Seattle a number of years ago, Schultz opened a bakery and sandwich shop which became a scene for Seattle poets. He now enjoys traveling across the US in his retirement.
The Second Sunday series continues on December 14, featuring the poetry of recently retired Rose State College President Terry Britton.
The Depot offers an intimate listening room for concerts and poetry, an art gallery, a rental venue for private events, and Amtrak service each morning, all in a beautiful historic building -- plus Summer Breeze concerts in Lions Park.
