Earlier this week was the birthday of poet Mari Evans…
“Mari Evans is the greatest living poet” – Maya Angelou
In addition to greats like Kurt Vonnegut and John Green, Mari Evans is one of Indianapolis’s greatest literary treasures… and we are delighted to share her work with you here!
NOTE: Ignore the YouTube titles on these recordings, these are recordings of Evans reading her work.
If you want to read more of her poems, we recommend
