Shelterbelt Series: Richie Hofmann Poetry Reading In Springfield

Feb 2, 2016

Richie Hofmann is a 28 year old poet living in Chicago. He will be coming to Springfield this week to read poems from his new book, called Second Empire.

It's part of the Shelterbelt Creative Writing and Publishing Series. The event on Thursday evening will take place in the Suggs Studios at the NPR Illinois station and all are invited to attend. The event starts at 7pm. Our station is on the UIS campus, close to parking lot B. (Map here.)  I spoke with Hofmann to get a preview of what the evening will hold:
