Celebrate Langston Hughes’s’ birthday with a reading reception for Langston Hughes Creative Writing Award winners, complete with birthday cake and live music!
Co-sponsored by The Raven Book Store and the Lawrence Arts Center, the award honors the work of Hughes, who spent his childhood in Lawrence, Kansas.
