Poet Ken Arkind discusses his new book: Coyotes

As American National Poetry Slam Champion and executive director of the award-winning Minor Disturbance Youth Slam Team, Ken Arkind gets to share his words with the world. A lot of those words are about his native turf of Denver, Aurora and the Colfax Avenue connection, and his second book, Coyotes, shares the poet's frustrations and triumphs with the place he calls home.

Ken Arkind's release party for his new book, Coyotes, goes down at 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 11, at Deer Pile. The gathering will feature Arkind executing his work live alongside a diverse cast of local and national performers, including Lady Speech, National Poetry Slam champion Katie Wirsing, World Poetry Slam champion Rudy Francisco, Brian Polk, Westword contributor Josiah Hesse and Cop Circles. This event is all-ages and donations for the artists will be accepted at the door. For more information, visit the event's Facebook page.
