Poet Jo McDougal has many connections to Fayetteville. She went to college at the University of Arkansas and returned some time later to get her MFA in creative writing. She returns again this evening to read from her latest collection In the Home of the Famous Dead at Nightbird Books. She will showcase poems with a place in the town as well as a couple from her mentor and friend the late Miller Williams.
Today's poetry minute is Maylon Rice reading an excerpt from Mother Goose of the Ozarks by Ray Wood and "House By the Side of the Road" by Sam Walter Foss. Rice has more than 40 years experience working as a newspaper reporter, editor and columnist.
