support poetry
One of the best ways to support poetry is to purchase books by writers. The purchase price helps authors subsidies their work and also gives them a boost when you value their work enough to pay for it. Yes, our events come to you free of charge. That's another part of the Prairie Art Brothers' mission. We search for grants and take donations so that we can pay the writers who read their work for us, but any money they get from book sales helps them in their writing career.

Our writers bring books to the readings to sell. They enjoy signing the books and meeting readers who think highly enough of their work to purchase it. If you intend to purchase a book, please consider bringing cash to the reading. Some of the writers can make electronic purchases but cash works best — and small bills, too.

Poems are handbooks for human decency and understanding. Poets hold water in their cupped hands and run back from the well because someone is parched and thirsting. The poem is a force field against despair. — Elizabeth Alexander, Academy of American Poets Chancellor (2015– )
