LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – An opportunity to hear original works by EOU poetry students while supporting a good cause is coming up Thursday, March 14 at Cook Memorial Library.
The student-readings are the cornerstone of “A Night of Verse” fundraiser being organized by Professor David Axelrod’s introduction to poetry class. Admission is a donation of non-perishable food or cash to be collected at the door for the university’s ongoing food drive. The event starts at 7 p.m.
Axelrod, who is involved with bringing the arts to Union County and EOU through the Ars Poetica Lecture Series and “basalt” magazine, has incorporated into his curriculum the opportunity for students to gain experience in arts administration. Students have named themselves “Hungry Poets” for the event and they hope to bring in many donations.
“This is a charitable event, and the students of EOU are performing both a civic and artistic responsibility,” Axelrod said. “The class as a group wants to make an effort to help out the community.”
For more information contact Axelrod at 541-963-9178.
