It is not yet time to return to The Bard’s Town for poetry readings over a plate of Titus Nacho-nicus. Instead, Louisville Literary Arts’ weekly author reading series is still virtual this month. But, the featured luminaries are as bright as ever. Log on to Zoom to hear from three Kentucky poets. The first, Frank X Walker was Kentucky’s first African American poet laureate and co-founder of the Affrilachian Poets, who recently released a collection called “Masked Man, Black: Pandemic & Protest Poems.” makalani bandele is another member of the Affrilachian Poets whose most recent collection “under the aegis of a winged mind” won the 2019 Autumn House Press Poetry Prize. And finally, you’ll hear from Britton Shurley, the author of the chapbook “Spinning the Vast Fantastic” and an associate professor of English at West Kentucky Community & Technical College in Paducah, Kentucky.
