Local and national poets share their work in the idyllic setting of the Cleveland Botanical Garden, co-sponsor of this event. Their readings reveal how globalism -- gathering ideas from new places and cultures or from objects and ideas that have come from afar -- has shaped their work. The day also includes a poetry contest, book signing, and reception. Support provided by the Helen Buchman Sharnoff Endowed Fund for Poetry at Case Western Reserve University and the Ohio Arts Council. Pre-registration required for free admission to garden. Poets include Ilya Kaminsky (San Diego State University), Phil Metres (John Carroll University), Kazim Ali (Oberlin College), Michael Dumanis (Cleveland State University), and Erika Meitner (Virginia Tech).
