Local Poet Visit: John Yamrus

Tuesday, April. 2, 2019   |   2:00 p.m.

John Yamrus has published 26 volumes of poetry, two novels, and two volumes of non-fiction. He has also had nearly 2,000 poems published in print magazines around the world. Selections of his poetry have been translated into several languages, including Spanish, Swedish, French, Japanese, Italian, Romanian, Albanian, Estonian and Bengali. His poetry is taught in numerous colleges and universities.

His latest book, RMA, returns to the streets and scenes and people of the town where he grew up. The book is not only informative as to how the mature poet was shaped and formed, but also evocative of a time and place now long gone and nearly forgotten. Copies will be available for sale and signing.
