CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — The editors of a new UI Press poetry anthology will read selections from it Tuesday during a night of poetry and then turn the microphone over to others who want to read their own or someone else’s poetry.

During the event, which will take place from 7 to 9 p.m., the book’s editors, Kevin Stein and G.E. Murray, will read from the book, "Illinois Voices: An Anthology of Twentieth-Century Poetry," said Danielle Dupuis, publicity manager for the UI Press.

The evening of poetry, which is free and open to the public, will take place in the "Author’s Corner" on the second floor of the Illini Union Bookstore, 809 S. Wright St., Champaign. Refreshments will be served.
