Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg and The Poetry Caravan Cancels Emporia Reading 4-14-2012 due to weather conditions
Kansas Poet Laureate Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, and members of The Poetry Caravan, has made the decision to reschedule the Emporia, Kansas reading previously scheduled for Saturday, April 14th, at 7:00 p.m. at Emporia State University due to the high probability of tornados and severe thunderstorms forecast to move through the Oklahoma City area and north into the Salina, Kansas regions that evening. Many of the predicted (CNN is reporting a hundred) tornadoes are expected to stay on the ground for a lengthy time period and form after dark.
Goldberg will reschedule the event which called for Art Funding reinstatement for the state of Kansas, as well as readings of BEGIN AGAIN: 150 Kansas Poems and an on-line in concert Renga project, and will announce the date soon.
