Riverfront Reading Series Presents Phyllis Becker and Rhiannon Ross

  • The Writers Place 3607 Pennsylvania Kansas City, MO 64111 USA

Phyllis Becker is a graduate of Howard University and works in human services. She is coordinator of the Riverfront Reading Series, which features local and regional writers. Her poems have been published in several literary magazines. Her book How I Came to Love Jazz was published in 2008 (Helicon Nine). Phyllis's poems have been set to jazz on the CD Poetry of Love, produced, recorded and arranged by jazz vocal artist Angela Hagenbach. Phyllis spends time between Jefferson City and Kansas City. While she enjoys her work in Jeff City, life between two cities unfortunately causes her to miss many great literary events in KC and the ups and downs of the daily lives of her dear friends and family.

Rhiannon Ross is an award-winning journalist and editor. Her poetry has appeared in literary publications, as well as in the anthology, To the Stars Through Difficulties, a Kansas Notable Book. She is a member of the Riverfront Reading Series Committee, the Collaborators, and Denise Low's Kansas City Workshop.
