Jim Madigan, Deputy Director of the Oak Park Public Library and folk-music enthusiast community, reports that library is launching a new series called Poem & Place, where library staff will read poems from Kevin Coval’s book “A People’s History of Chicago” at relevant places in Oak Park.

The group will meet on Monday, July 23 at 6 p.m. at the northwest corner of Lombard Avenue and Washington Boulevard and walk a half block to read a couple poems honoring Dawn Greening for her role in founding the Old Town School of Folk Music.

Steve Levitt, an Old Town School instructor, will be there to play a couple songs. The program is part of the library’s One Book, One Oak Park program.
