In Celebration of National Poetry Month, we present an evening with three award-winning poets: Matthew Thorburn, Keith Taylor and Cody Walker

NYC poet Matthew Thorburn is the author of six collections of poetry, including his most recent, Dear Almost, a book-length poem addressed to an unborn child lost in miscarriage. Poet and writer Keith Taylor teaches creative writing at UofM, is poetry editor for the Michigan Quarterly Review, and is the author of 16 collections of poetry, including The Bird-while, published in February of this year. Cody Walker teaches English at UofM. He's the author of two poetry collections: The Self-Styled No-Child and Shuffle and Breakdown. Walker's third collection, The Trumpiad, will be published on April 29 (the last of Trump's first 100 Days). All proceeds will be donated to the ACLU.
