Poets talk: The University of South Florida Humanities Institute celebrates the final week of National Poetry Month with three events:

• At 6 p.m. Monday in the Marshall Student Center (MSC 4200), writer and poet Terri Witek and new media artist Cyriaco Lopes present an evening of poetry and the visual arts. Their collaborations have appeared in galleries or projects in New York City, Los Angeles and elsewhere.

• At 6 p.m. Wednesday in GraphicStudio, poet Stephen Kampa will read from his works. His book, Cracks in the Invisible, won the 2012 Florida Book Award Gold Medal.

• At 8 p.m. Friday in the Blackbox Theatre, College of the Arts (TAR 120), the ancient roots of epic poetry are revisited in a performance of An Iliad, an acclaimed re-imagination by Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare of Homer's great poem on the Trojan War. While most productions cast the poet as a grizzled war veteran, this new production features 24-year-old Daniel J. Tobin, a Tampa native, portraying a much younger figure. Admission to all events is free. Reserve seats by e-mailing ebird@usf.edu. For information, contact Liz Kicak at (813) 974-3657 or ekicak@usf.edu.

Volunteer fair: Attend a nonprofit volunteer fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 27 at the Marshall Student Center Ballroom, 4103 Cedar Circle, on the University of South Florida campus. The "Connect for a Difference Volunteer Fair" is a chance for the community to learn more about local nonprofit and community service organizations. Nearly 20 organizations have registered, with many more expected in the coming weeks. Sponsored by the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce and Emerge Tampa Bay, an organization of young professionals, the event will also give the nonprofits a chance to attract new members and volunteers. For information or sponsorship opportunities, contact Ashley Ehrman at (813) 276-9448 or AEhrman@tampachamber.com.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Rays manager Kevin Cash liked the way Alex Cobb was competing Friday night. He liked the way the hard contact made by the Rangers batters went away after the second or third inning. So as the game headed toward the ninth, there was no doubt in Cash's mind that sending Cobb back to the mound was …

    Rays starter Alex Cobb can hardly believe what just happened as he leaves the game in the ninth after allowing a leadoff double then a tying two-run homer to the Rangers’ Shin-Soo Choo.
