The Friends of the Southern Boone County Public Library are pleased to welcome Walter Bargen, first Poet Laureate of Missouri, as the guest speaker at their annual meeting. Walter Bargen’s poems and fiction have appeared in over 100 magazines. He is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship in poetry, and winner of the William Rockhill Nelson Award. Other awards include the Quarter After Eight Prose Prize, the St. Louis Poetry Center’s Hanks Prize and the Chester H. Jones Foundation Poetry Prize. He will address our group on “The Dangerous Adventure of Reading” or “A Poetic Tour of Ashland” or maybe both. The Friends will conduct a brief business meeting prior to the author event, but anyone is welcome to attend.
