Jim McCrary + friends

Jim McCrary and friends 
5 pm Sunday, September 18th

Join us in celebrating the release of Jim McCrary's new chapbook, A Yearbook (Shirt Pocket Press, 2016), and Jim's 75th birthday! The evening will begin with celebratory poems from a variety of poets near and far and will be headlined by Jim reading from A Yearbook. There might even be cake--and there will definitely be drinks served up by our beloved Ian. It's going to be a fun night.

Jim McCrary lives in Lawrence, Kansas. He has been contributing editor to several journals over the years including Grist, Loose Gravel, Avec and First Intensity. He edited and published a zine called Smelt Money thru thirteen issues in the 1990's.

Publications include dozens of chapbook and books and publications in journals and online. He will be reading from his new chapbook A Yearbook (Shirt Pocket Press, 2016).
