Less than a year ago, Cocklebur Press, an independent micropress, hosted their first poetry reading at Gathering Volumes. Since then, the local poetry press has been preparing for its first book release, Point of Departure, a collection of 33 new poems from Midwest poet, editor, publisher, & literary activist Michele McDannold.
Celebrate the first of, what will likely be, many books to come, with an evening of party and poetry. BYOB. Cash donation required.
