Frugal Poets' Guide to Life
Saturday, April 22, 2017
2:00 PM — 3:30 PM
Chicago-based poet Cynthia Gallaher will read from her recent book, Frugal Poets' Guide to Life, and present a talk on creativity. Frugal Poets Guide to Life is part memoir, part life-coaching for poets (or those whod like to live like one), part creativity guide, with a special section on the history of the Chicago poetry scene, including the birth of the poetry slam. Frugal Poets Guide to Life is a book to nurture any creative person, whether he or she is a musician, dancer, visual artist, fiction or nonfiction writer, or a poet.
Cynthia Gallahers published works include three full poetry collections and two poetry chapbooks, as well as the Frugal Poets Guide to Life. The Chicago Public Library lists her among its Top 10 Requested Chicago Poets.
