2010 Tea & Poetry series kicks off on Jan. 7

The fourth annual Tea & Poetry series will kick off on Thursday, Jan. 7 with poet/musician Kurtis Lamkin at Coastal Carolina University's Waccamaw Higher Education Center at 3 p.m. This event is part of "Free Week," sponsored by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).

Lamkin, a poet who plays the Kora, a 21-string West African instrument, has performed internationally at festivals, concert halls, universities and prisons. He has also performed on many radio and television shows and was one of the featured poets on Bill Moyers' "Fooling with Words" television special, as well as the children's show, "Deputy Billy." His animated poem "The Foxes Manifesto" aired for two years on PBS. His poems have been published in numerous anthologies, such as Elements of Literature, The Paterson Review and New City Voices. He is currently touring with his latest CD, "Magic Yams."

Co-sponsored by OLLI and the Poetry Society of South Carolina, the 2010 Tea & Poetry Series is held the first Thursday of each month through May. It is free and open to the public. A reception and book signing follow the reading. For more information, call 843-349-4030 or visit the Tea & Poetry Series group on Facebook.
