April is National Poetry Month and Public Radio 90 is continuing its tradition of showcasing the work of area poets, from NMU students to regional writers. Each weekday morning at 9:32 a.m. and again in the afternoon at 3 p.m. tune in to hear the work of these wonderful, local writers.

We hear the second round of poetry from Alex Vartan Gubbins. He's written and recorded poems in four languages: Arabic, Armenian, Anishinaabemowin, and English. He's also recorded each poem in the native language with its translation into English.
