(A New Coffee & Tea Place)

4015 N. Penn
Oklahoma City, OK

First Sunday of Each Month
Beginning March 4, 2012

First Featured Reader: Ken Hada

Ken Hada, a fourth generation Oklahoman, teaches at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma where he directs the Scissortail Writing Festival. His critical pieces have appeared in journals such as Southwestern American Literature, and he has published two collections of poetry: The Way of the Wind, and Spare Parts, which won the prestigious 2011 Western Heritage Award, was a finalist for the Oklahoma Book Award in poetry, and was featured on Garrison Keillor’s NPR Writers Almanac. His newest book, titled, The River White: A Confluence of Brush & Quill, features Ken’s poetry with the watercolor art of his brother, Duane Hada. It is a breathtakingly beautiful book.

OPEN MIC: The featured reading is followed by an Open Mic session, when other poets may read their work.
