The University Press of North Georgia held a poetry reading on April 13th to celebrate national poetry month. We would like to thank everyone who participated and attended the reading. Three poets presented very beautiful and very different types of poetry that the audience enjoyed very much. Local poet, Ben Sierachik wowed the audience with his poems that were both humorous and touching.

We are hoping to host several of these types of poetry reading a year, so keep coming back for more information about future readings and events!
