Celebrate National Poetry Month with Milkweed Editions! Join us for an evening honoring outstanding poets from the upper Midwest and the vitality of the poetry community at large. A reception will take place on the second floor of the Open Book building with poets and their many fans (plus poetry-themed drinks and hors d’oeuvres), and then the fun continues with a reading featuring the finalists* for this year’s Ballard Spahr Prize for Poetry. (Finalists will be announced in early April.)
