Naional Poetry Month

Author Jim Reese’s poetry collection “Really Happy” is the second feature of the 2016 Dakota Midday Book Club.

Reese joins Midday to discuss how poetry has informed his role as father, the use of poetry in federal prison, and the importance of truth and second chances.

If you are a member of the Dakota Midday Book Club, our next  book will arrive in your mailbox before long. It's called "Worthy" by Denice Turner.

MJ McMillan is a South Dakota rancher and poet. He joins Dakota Midday during National Poetry Month to talk about poetry that celebrates day-to-day life, for day-to-day people. McMillan and host Lori Walsh discuss rhyme, ranching, and rambling, and McMillan recites a signature poem from his latest collection.

McMillan is also joined by Deb Lux, with the Rapid City Arts Council, who talks about the Word 4 Word event at the Dahl in Rapid City.
