She is the author of Radiance, her first full-length book, which won the 2005 Word Press First Book competition and was a finalist for the 2006 Paterson Poetry Prize.

Crooker's poems have appeared in many journals such as Yankee, The Christian Science Monitor, Smartish Pace, The Beloit Poetry Journal, Nimrod, The Denver Quarterly, The Tampa Review, and Poetry International.

The festivities start at 7 with an open mike. Bring your own poems or share somebody else's. All are welcome. Barbara Crooker will take the stage around 8:05 pm. The Midtown Scholar Bookstore, 1302 N. Third St. Harrisburg PA, Phone:717.236.1680.
