William Trowbridge will read from his latest poetry collection Call Me Fool. He will be joined by a number of local poets who have worked with William over the years.  Like many of Bill's readings, this is sure to be a lively literary event. Come prepared to laugh, and maybe even cry a little. 

Call Me Fool, William Trowbridge’s ninth poetry collection, Call Me Fool, came out from Red Hen Press in September. Over 550 of his poems have appeared in numerous literary magazines and in more than 50 anthologies and textbooks. He is a faculty mentor in the University of Nebraska-Omaha Low-residency MFA in Writing Program and was Poet Laureate of Missouri from 2012 to 2016.
