Poetry Aloud 

Marie Asner's poems traffic in soaring imagery and terse invocations of emotion, and she manages to make contradictions and incongruities seem commonplace — maybe even expected — in the lines of her verse ("hiss of fang sneers through broken promises"). Drop by today's installment of the Johnson County Public Library's Meet the Writer series to hear Asner read Kansas-themed poems and discuss the writing process. Asner, who wrote the book Tenebrae for Modern Times and has been published in the Rockford Review, Encore and Potpourri, is a Kansas resident who also has penned odes to fellow Kansan Amelia Earhart. Asner's free reading takes place at 3 p.m. at Claridge Court (8101 Mission Road in Prairie Village). For more information, call 913-495-2400.
