On Thursday evening, September 15, East Central's own Dr. Ken Hada will be giving a poetry reading, followed by an open mic (in which you can participate). The event is a monthly occurrence at the Benedict Street Cafe in Shawnee, beginning at 7pm (It is usually over by 8:30 or 9 pm).
According to Dr. Hada, "Some good poetry usually occurs here, along with those just getting started. Also, the deli has great sandwiches, etc,. so if you get there around -ish you can have a tasty, inexpensive dinner and coffee while the poetry is occurring." See Dr. Hada if you need directions.
