History in the Telling: Poems Celebrating Black History Month
by Warren Landrum
Date: 2/19/2013 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Cost: Free

The Grand Prairie Library presents author Warren Landrum and  History in the Telling:Poems Celebrating Black History Month, a free program at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, February 19 at the Main Library.

Since moving from the steel-mill town of East Chicago, Indiana to Grand Prairie, Warren Landrum has become active in many aspects of the community. He has served on the boards of several difference organizations such as Keep Grand Prairie Beautiful, the YMCA, and the public library.

He will be reading from his book of poetry The Heart and Soul of a Black Man, and his work Let’s Go Home to Indiana Harbor - Reflections from Mid-Town America.

"I am excited and honored to be sharing my work during Black History Month. I take great pride in taking every opportunity to lift up the accomplishments of my people, or to serve as a potential role-model for a child who may have never met an actual Black author."
