Previous authors include former United States poet laureate Ted Kooser, American Book Award winner Maria Mazziotti Gillan, Elizabeth Cook-Lynn, David Lee, and William Kloefkorn, amongst others.
The Great Plains Writers' Tour is comprised of a series of readings and discussion programs that explore various arts and humanities components - poetry, performance poetry and storytelling.
