Stacey Tolbert discusses <i>People Poems</i>
The latest Kansas City Women Writers series will feature one writer who recently moved away from Kansas City.
By Sylvia Maria Gross
Kansas City, MO – Stacey Tolbert is a playwright and poet, and she was on KC Currents last year talking about her recent documentary exploring women and their breasts. This summer, Tolbert was the first "poet in residence" at Kansas City's Public Library. And she was also selected for a Cave Canem fellowship, an artist's retreat designed for African American writers.
KCUR's Sylvia Maria Gross reached her at her new home in Seattle to talk about her new People Poems which she'll be reading from on Wednesday, October 17, 2007, 7 pm at the UMKC University Center.
