Title

  • Poetry at Noon: The Air Poets

Summary

  • Former Indiana Poet Laureate Joyce Brinkman introduces a group of "Airpoets" whose poems were incorporated into stained-glass murals in the new Indianapolis International Airport that is scheduled to open later this year as part of the Library's Poetry at Noon series. The poets include Ruthelen Burns, Joseph Heithaus and the current Indiana Poet Laureate Norbert Krapf. Brinkman herself is an "Airpoet." The work written by the "Airpoets," which was integrated into the new Indianapolis International Airport murals by artist Martin Donlin, was collected into a collaborative book titled "Rivers, Rails and Runways" (2008).
