Poetry in the Park is entering its third year and remains dedicated to bringing quality poetry for free to Juneau Park. This season features established poets from Milwaukee, Madison, and Chicago, alongside up-and-coming local poets.

 

We will meet around the Solomon Juneau statue overlooking Lake Michigan. Please join us with your blankets, chairs, beverages, snacks, pets, and pals! Rain or shine. (Stay tuned for weather and location updates.)

 

June’s event will feature DASHA KELLY, an alumna of HBO's Def Poetry Jam who has been thrice selected to travel to Botswana as an Arts Envoy for the U.S. Embassy. Kelly was named Artist of the Year in 2016 by the Milwaukee Arts Board, and her novel Almost Crimson received critical accolades from the Rumpus, Buzzfeed, and Kirkus.

 

Kelly will be reading alongside University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee PhD candidates C. MCALLISTER WILLIAMS (author of Neon Augury and WILLIAM SHATNER) and SOHAM PATEL (author of Riva: A Chapter and New Weather Drafts) and ANGELA C. TRUDELL VASQUEZ (editor for Art Night Books).
