The Friends of the Madison County Library will hold a general meeting at the Madison County Library on Sunday, January 24 at 3:00 pm with special guest speaker David Oates, producer and host of the WUGA, Athens radio show Wordland, dedicated to poetry, fiction and comedy. Tune in to 91.7 FM or 97.9 FM or listen to David on live stream at www.uga.org on Sunday evenings at 8:00 PM.
His previous radio jobs were as the host of Front Porch Stories, a sort of Appalachian Radio Reader, for WMMT in Whitesburg, Kentucky, and as a writer and performer on Things You Need to Hear (comedy) at WETS in Johnson City, Tennessee. Oates also ran the Athens Poetry Slam and Open Mike for many years, and has performed his work at numerous slams and readings. His latest book, Drunken Robins, published by Brick Road Poetry Press, is a collection of haiku and senryu poems capturing evocative moments from nature and people.
The event is free and open to the public. Not a member of the Friends of the Library? Stop by the library today and join for as little as $10 for adults and $1 for youth. Thanks for your support.
