Poetry Reading

Saturday, March 10

On Saturday, March 10th at 2 p.m., Tom Adamson, a published author, will come to the Columbus Library and read poetry to us while we have refreshments. He currently is an active songwriter with several musicians in the area, and is an Associate Professor of Business at Midland University. Tom has written over 1,200 lyrics and poems, and collected and published them in 20 different books. Tom cites his biggest influences on his writing as the Bible, Yeats, and both the Dylans—Bob and Thomas. His love of rhythm and rhyme began at the age of 7 in church listening to the hymns. Tom would change the words to the hymns—which greatly amused him, of course!
