Taking on Life: The Prison Poetry Project

A free and open evening of poetry and art to honor 15 years of the Douglas County Correction Facility’s writing program. Poet Brian Daldorph will speak and read selections from the poems that have emerged over the last 15 years in classes he has led within the prison walls. He will be joined by poet and former student Antonio Sanchez-Day as well as writer Mike Hartnett. The evening includes a chance to view three original works of art created by Norman Akers, Lora Jost and Jen Unekis based on prison poems from the project. Co-sponsored by Lawrence Magazine and Lawrence Public Library with cooperation of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
