When: Fri., Feb. 8, 7 p.m. 2013
After teaching poetry for 36 years at the College of Charleston, Paul Allen retired, sold all of his belongings, and hit the road in a 20-foot Toy Hauler camper. He's been traveling cross-country for the last two years, and he's circled back around to Charleston, where he's giving a free reading of his newest road poems on Fri. Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. at the Charleston Library Society. Here's what he had to say about his journey. Follow along with him at poems-songs.com.
