Cowboy Poetry at the South Sioux City Public Library

Marci Broyhill Presents a Night of Cowboy Poetry
We are proud to host Marci Broyhill for a night of Cowboy Poetry on Monday April 22nd at 6:30 p.m.

Deep agricultural roots tap a reservoir of material for Marci's pen and presentations. Marci researches the men and the women who lived and traveled the trails west of the Missouri River. She marvels at the determination and courage; honoring their efforts by giving them a voice through verse and story.

Marci's entertaining performances also address nature, dilemmas in society, the joys and challenges of family life. Her topics tug at the heartstrings of the audience, rekindling memories.

The library has two collections of Marci’s poetry on CD:  Mending Fences and one entitled Window of Memories.
