Iowa’s Poet Laureate is coming to Kalona to share some readings. Iowa Poet Laureate Mary Swander says she will be joined by two Poets Laureate from Kansas and the Poet Laureate from Missouri tomorrow to share in readings of a new anthology.  The work called Endless Skyways contains pieces from Laureates from 26 different states and is a collection that explores the poetry of places, but at the same time offers a glimpse into the poetry of our whole land.

Swander says there will be a reading of the parts of the book at the Kalona General Store tomorrow starting at 1:00 pm.  To hear more from Mary Swander, listen to today’s In Touch With Southeast Iowa program during the mid‑day magazine.
