|Printing and poetry are complimentary art forms.|
In celebration of poetry in print, UK Libraries and King Library Press present two events around the theme of "Verse in Type: Poets & Printers, an Artistic Affinity."
The “Verse in Type” exhibit at Clark Art and Antiques will open with a reception from 3 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 26. The reception and exhibit, at 801 Winchester Road in Lexington, are free and open to the public. The exhibit will include broadsides and books from the King Library Press and guest contributors, as well as broadsides of two winning poems from the UK Poetry Broadside contest. The King Library Press co-sponsored the contest with the Department of English Master of Fine Arts Creative Writing Program. The winners are Robin LaMer Rahija, from Kansas City, Missouri, a student in the MFA Creative Writing Program, and Kelsey Potter, from Worthington, Kentucky, a rising senior double majoring in English and integrated strategic communication with a minor in theatre.
The annual King Library Press Spring Seminar will take place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 28, at the Hilary J. Boone Center on UK’s campus. Dara Wier and Emily Pettit will be joint guest lecturers for the seminar, which is also free and open to the public.
