Celebrate Mothers Day with an hour of poetry at The Depot, Sunday, May 12, 2019 at 2:00 pm. There is no admission charge.
Dr. Larry Griffin, who has published nonfiction, short stories and poems in regional, national and international journals, ezines and small magazines, is scheduled to read. We have, however, been unable to get in contact with Griffin . Carl Sennhenn, long time host of Second Sunday Poetry, will read in his place should Griffin not be available.
Oklahoma poetry elder statesman Carl Sennhenn served as Oklahoma Poet Laureate in 2001 and 2002 and was given the 2013 Oklahoma Book Award for his fourth book of poetry, Nocturnes and Sometimes, Even I. His Travels Through Enchanted Woods received the 2007 Oklahoma Book Award for Poetry. Balkan Press, publisher of Conclave, has named the journal's annual poetry prize in his honor. Now in semi-retirement he teaches Creative Writing for senior adults at Rose State College.
Events at The Depot are made possible, in part, by grants from the Norman Arts Council and the Oklahoma Arts Council, The City of Norman, and by generous corporate and individual donations.
