Bucks County poet David Mook, a frequent public reader of poetry throughout the Lehigh Valley, will give a reading of his works 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Williams Visual Arts Building.

Live music and an open microphone will follow the reading. A $3 donation is suggested.

A graduate of Beaver College in Glenside, Pa., Mook is completing graduate studies in the creative writing program at Vermont College. His poems have appeared in a variety of journals, and his first collection, Each Leaf, co-written with his late daughter, Sarah, was published by Freewheeling Press in 1999. Of this collection, poet Christopher Bursk writes: “A beautiful book that left me both grieving and rejoicing – a wonderful tribute to Sarah and to poetry and to life.” A short, personal essay, “Fishing,” which appears in Each Leaf, received an honorable mention from Robert Atwan in his prestigious series, “The Best American Essays, 2000.” Mook will read work from Each Leaf as well as newer poems.

The event is part of the Riverside Reading Series. The next Friday reading at the Williams Visual Arts Building will be held June 7.
