WWI Poetry Reading

Wednesday, October 8, 4:00 pm, Central Court, Spencer Museum of Art

Join visiting artist and Marine veteran Folleh Tamba and KU students as they read poems written during WWI that have inspired Tamba’s art. His exhibition, “A Grunt’s War Diary,” on view at Kansas State University this October, “is a work with immense emotive energy that will educate and create true empathy for the men and women who have fought on all sides in all wars.”
