To Kutztown!

KU Hosting "Wordpainters" for National Poetry Month

Two poets who do "wordpainting" and digital poetry will read at Kutztown University Wednesday, April 9, at 5 p.m. at Kutztown University for National Poetry Month.

They are Jennifer Hill Kaucher, editor of Paper Kite Press Studio and Gallery, a Kingston, PA, studio devoted to creative writing and visual art, and Dan Waber, a visual-concrete-sound poet, multimedia artist, and publisher who makes his online home at

Hill-Kaucher and Waber collaborate on a variety of print and digital poetry projects. Jennifer's four books of poetry include A Proper Dress, poems examining the role of women in regional Pennsylvania history. Dan's book Boys, A-Z: A Primer is an "x-raying" of the "y-chromosome zone" given that "all boys come disguised, especially from girls."

Refreshments will be be served starting at 4:30. Books by Hill-Kaucher and Waber will be for sale, and they will sign books following the reading.

This free event open to the public is co-sponsored by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the English Department, and Berks Bards as part of BardFest.
