The Invisible Keys Cope Reading Follow-up

Poet David Cope.

Poet David Cope.

Last night’s Post-Beat Poet David Cope Poetry Reading and Book Signing event in the LLC was enjoyed by all attendees!   David shared a variety of poems written on life topics including: the Vietnam War; growing up and family life; love; sustaining friendships; being a janitor; the joy of choosing just the right word; and much more. Thanks to Maryann Lesert for her introduction of David’s career and works, and for sharing portions of her Rapidian review of his recently-published book,  The Invisible Keys.  Students, staff, faculty, Golden Raiders, and members of the community attended. We’ll post the streaming video as soon as it is closed-captioned. This event was sponsored by the Library & Learning Commons and the English Department.
