I35 Creativity Corridor: Jim McCrary, Lawrence, KS, April 23

McCrary has lived in Lawrence, KS on and off since 1965.  He knows where the Oregon, Santa Fe and California trails run past the town...has walked the ruts.  He lives 20 minutes from the confluence of I-35 and I-70.  Route 66 a couple hours south.  Kerouac hitched by on old Hiway 24....KC, Topeka and on to Denver. McCrary's latest publications include Not, Not; All That; Mental Text and Po Doom.  Recent poems in Truck, Otiliths, House Organ and other publications too obscure to remember.  He helps out at the 8th St Taproom Poetry Series in downtown Lawrence which is curated by Megan Kaminski.
