Poetry Discussion Group
This weekly poetry discussion group is open to everyone including regulars and drop-ins. All voices are honored: first-time poetry readers and life-long devotees.
Every Monday, the group convenes to discuss the work of a particular poet, usually contemporary, and sometimes one reading in the area. Copies of the poems are provided for each participant. No prior reading or preparation required.
Schedule may be subject to change. Updates will be posted here.
