Kevin Rabas, in his first year as poet laureate, will be out and about the state with a talk about "Finding the Extraordinary in the Ordinary".
And it's no surprise to those who know him to learn that his drum will accompany him. A friend and I heard Kevin last Saturday at the Leavenworth Library. That is, heard in more ways than one. Kevin added a drum accompaniment to several of his poetic readings.
Try to catch Kevin as he moves around the state. Follow his schedule at Kansas Humanities Council
Kevin also has plans for what he will do during the second year of his time as poet laureate. Stay tuned.
After I try to see if I can get this blog posted, I'll try to add a picture. (P.S. Kevin plays a mean drum.)
