Accomplished local poets Larry Levy and Skip Renker will read some of their poetry at Creative 360’s Downtown Midland Gallery at 144 Ashman on Monday, August 29 from 7-8:30 p.m.

Renker lived for many years in Midland and now resides in Petoskey with his wife, Julia Fogarty. His award-winning poems have appeared in numerous journals and magazines and in four books, including the just published A patient hunger. A graduate of Notre Dame and Duke, he holds an MFA from Seattle Pacific University and is Professor Emeritus at Delta College.

Levy’s poems have appeared in The Virginia Quarterly Review, The Driftwood Review, Third Wednesday, South Carolina Review, and Controlled Burn, among others. His latest collection of poetry, blessed arrangement, includes a piece nominated for the Pushcart Award. Retired from teaching at all levels, from preschool to graduate school, Larry and his wife Cheryl live in Midland, directing plays for community theater.

“I’m thrilled to be reading again with my talented friend, Skip Renker,” Levy said. “We will be sharing poems from several of our books, as well as some more recent and as yet uncollected poems. Midland’s Creative 360 ​​recently opened Ashman Street downtown space is actually the perfect venue for this event.

Books will be available for purchase at the event. Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP by calling Creative 360 ​​at 989-837-1885 or registering at becreative360.org. Admission is $5.
