This is a series of four live get-togethers hosted by local poet Lee Kisling once per month beginning on Thursday, March 24 and ending on June 9. Lee will bring poems by various poets to be read aloud and discussed. The purpose is to share some excellent modern poems that are not widely known and to talk about what makes them fine examples of the craft of poetry. Imagine that!
Thursday, March 24, 2022 – Twelve modern poems and why they are great. Participants will receive handouts with the poems and some biographical information about the poets. By “modern” it is meant from 1930 to today. Some of these fine poems you have never heard! This is part of our NEA Big Read programming and sponsored by Art Reach St. Croix. Everyone welcome.
