Grand Rapids Poet Laureate Emeritus David Cope will read from his new book, The Invisible Keys: New and Selected Poems, and from poetry he’s written throughout his career during a special event on April 12.
A long-time GRCC English professor, Cope sparked the poetic imaginations of many of his students. He also served as editor of GRCC’s Display Magazine for many years.
Copies of Cope’s book, published by Ghost Pony Press, will be for sale at $16 during the event, which runs from 7-8:30 p.m. on the GRCC library’s second floor. Refreshments will be served during the reading, which is sponsored by the library and the English Department.
