Meet Indiana Poet Laureate George Kalamaras November 6

Poetry Not Poison: How to Find Our Way Back to the Joy of Poetry Writing on November 6, 2014 at Clowes Memorial Hall, Butler University is your chance to meet Indiana Poet Laureate George Kalamaras. This 4:30 p.m. workshop is based on the concept that "the poet" is the one who sees the world deeply enough to transform it into metaphorical vision.
