Dove Tale 

When: Thu., Oct. 16 2014
One of the best known poets in the country, Akron native Rita Dove has written extensively about her Northeast Ohio roots. Over the course of a lengthy career, she’s published nine collections of poetry, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Thomas and Beulah, a collection of poems about her maternal grandparents. The former U.S. Poet Laureate, Dove is currently a Commonwealth professor of English at the University of Virginia. Tonight at 6:30 at the Akron Civic Theatre, she’ll read from her work and talk about her life. Tickets are $20 to $75; all proceeds support adult literacy in Summit County. (Niesel)
