Live Free or Croak is a collection of poetry by poet/songwriter Larry Rogers. Rogers, a Vietnam veteran and longtime resident of west central Arkansas, draws on his sharp wit, playful love of words, and sensitive powers of observation to produce some of the finest snapshots of modern American country life available today. Rogers' poems are sweet, slow, mellow meditations with a bit of a sting sometimes. This collection of poetry will have readers laughing and wiping tears from their eyes at the same time.
Larry Rogers is a poet/songwriter. Growing up he lived for a while in Berkeley and Compton, California, but was mostly raised in a potting shed trailer in the piney woods of west central Arkansas--a sanctuary for moonshiners, marijuana growers, and merry pranksters.
He lives with his wife, Judy, in Fort Smith, Arkansas. They have two grown children, Lily and Hank.
