Poetry on the Plaza: Jazz Poetry - Harry Ransom Center - February 7, 2007

The first Poetry on the Plaza event of the year. The Harry Ransom Center starts the year off with Jazz Poetry this Wednesday @ noon, in conjunction with The American Twenties exhibit. Featuring the poetry of Langston Hughes and other.

Tight right?!? Check it out if you've got time. I unfortunately will be at work. :(

Dude... so going to lunch today... we frequent Tan Tan on Peyton Gin. Well we were taking the Peyton Gin exit off of 183 South and this driver, right in front of us, literally right in front of us, swerves left to get off the exit ramp, then changes his mind and swerves immediately right to get back on the ramp. He loses control of the car and runs into the right barrier... then runs into the left barrier. Crazy!

More info:

Poetry on the Plaza is a monthly noontime reading series sponsored by the Ransom Center. It is generally held on the first Wednesday of each month and features the works of authors whose papers are housed at the Center. Past poets read include William Shakespeare, T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Anne Sexton, and Dylan Thomas. Readers are drawn from the local community and have included professors and students at the university as well as local actors and authors.

The readings take place on the plaza directly east of the Ransom Center's main entrance. The Center is located at 21st and Guadalupe on the southeast corner of the university campus. Poetry on the Plaza is free and open to the public. In inclement weather, readings will be held in the Ransom Center's Lobby.
