Poets From Prison In Lansing, Kansas Read their Poetry
Last month the Arts In Prison Poetry project held a reading at the Johnson County Library. One of our KKFI volunteers, Jane Stoever was fortunate enough to attend and recorded the event. Today we are going to play pieces of that recording.
Host Beth Pike will have Arlin Buyert, director of the Prison Poetry Program in studio to talk about the program and Arts in Prison. Arlin will introduce you to the individuals who are reading on the recordings.
