Bill Lawlor, long-time Stevens Point resident and English professor at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, will be the featured poet at Stevens Point Fourth Thursday Open Mic from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at Episcopal Church of the Intercession, 1417 Church St.
Lawlor's original poems are narratives, visions, satires and humorous interpretations. Many of his poems reflect a view of life made popular by James Thurber and Ogden Nash. His book, "Let's Go Down to the Beach," features both translations and original poems.
An open mic will follow. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served.
