The InKY Reading Series returns to The Bard’s Town tonight at 7 p.m. with readings by Kentucky poet Tom C. Hunley and Spalding University MFA in Writing alum Marci Rae Johnson, with a special emerging writer reading by Louisville poet John James. 

The monthly reading series is free and features an open mic.

Hunley is an associate professor of English at Western Kentucky University, the director of Steel Toe Books, and the bassist for the litcore band Manley Pointer.  His chapbook “Scotch Tape World”  has just been released by Lexington’s Accents Publishing. Hunley is the author of a couple of textbooks and several poetry collections, including a series of poems in the voices of characters from “The Simpsons,” some of which are collected in “Annoyed Grunt” (Imaginary Friend Press, 2012).

Here he is reading “Otto Mann: Intrepid Bus Driver.”
