Hoosier scholar Adam Henze will give insights into urban, suburban and rural dynamics in the Hoosier state. Since the birth of the written word, poets have crafted personal stories that complicate our understanding of what it means to be home. In this presentation, performer Adam shares poems about big cities, small towns, and the search for home on the roads between them. Adam will read influential works about the hospitals, schools, churches, and prisons in our communities, weaving in his own original poems and stories about his journeys throughout the state. Adam is the director of Power of a Sentence, a literacy and creative writing program in Indiana prisons, and the Vice President of Southern Fried Poetry, Inc., which hosts the longest-running poetry slam festival in the world.
