Please join us for our February 16th reading featuring Bob Walkenhorst and Greg Hack.

Bob WalkenhorstBob Walkenhorst has been a presence in the American music scene for over 30 years. As songwriter and lead singer for the critically acclaimed rock band The Rainmakers, Bob’s unique vocals and viewpoints have gathered him a dedicated following. In 2020, Bob’s storytelling and visual poetry came together in his first book of short stories. Whirlybird Day is a series of connected vignettes about a single day in a small Missouri town, about the depth and mystery that can be found in the small details and moments of a quiet life. Bob’s other books are Scribbling on the Walls of the Mansion, the 2019 collection of his song lyrics, and My Version of the Story, the 2023 collection of lyrics and paintings from his album of the same name.

Greg HackAcross more than 40 years, Greg Hack was an editor and writer at two local institutions, the Kansas City Star and the University of Missouri-Kansas City. During the Great Recession, he began writing poems in the traditional American haiku meter and has since published two collections, Haiku in Low Places and As If COVID Wasn’t Bad Enough: Daily Haiku From the Pandemic Years. He lives in Lenexa with his wife, the artist Tina Kolm.
