Poetry reading Feb. 13 (02/12/2014)
‘Heartsongs’ with Ken McCullough, February 13, 7 p.m. at the Winona County History Center

Free and Open

to the public!

A poem of any kind can refresh the mind, but a love poem can have an especially interesting effect, however. Somehow, a well-written love poem induces us to relive those feelings of affection, attraction, and adoration. Many of the great poets of their time wrote their best verses while actually experiencing this unexplained emotion. Their love, whether fulfilled or unrequited, shines through the captivatingly crafted veil of words. Ken McCullough will share selections from 45 years of his own love poems and will be accompanied by Betsi Neil on fiddle and Mark McGuire on the 1884 Steinway piano. Refreshments and a reception will follow the performance.

Ken McCullough, Winona’s Poet Laureate 2009-11, has received numerous awards for his poetry including the Academy of American Poets Award, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, a Pablo Neruda Award, a Galway Kinnell Poetry Prize, the New Millennium Poetry Award, the Blue Light Book Award and the Capricorn Book Award. Some works of poetry Ken has published include Obsidian Point (2003) and Walking Backwards (2005), as well as a book of stories, Left Hand (2004).
