Event Description:

Poet and small press publisher Michael Czarnecki is on a "Poems Across America" tour in the United States, giving one reading in each of the lower 48 states. His only reading in Oregon will take place at Café Mundo in Newport on Sunday, September 29 from 3 to 5 p.m. Café Mundo is located at 209 NW Coast Street in the Nye Beach area. Free admission. 

This 14-week tour started in Maine on Tuesday, August 13 and the final reading will take place near his home in upstate New York on November 17, his 63rd birthday. The reading in Newport will be the 19th reading on the tour. 

Michael founded FootHills Publishing in 1986. Since then, FootHills has released more than 400 chapbooks and books of poetry by writers throughout America and beyond. His work is published in a dozen chapbooks and books, including his Twenty Days on Route 20. He has been making his living solely through the creative word for nearly two decades. Michael has given hundreds of featured readings throughout America and has taken many cross-country poetic journeys, though none as extensive as this. Some have taken to calling him “Michael Poetseed” because of his many journeys throughout America. When not on the poetic road, Michael lives with his wife and sons on their 50-acre Wheeler Hill homestead in upstate New York.
