READINGS BY TERRY LUCAS, MERYL NATCHEZ, TROY JOLLIMORE AND HEATHER ALTFELD

Event date: 
Wednesday, June 3, 2020 - 7:00pm

ONLINE---

"Poems for a Dark Time." The poems themselves include some dark themes, but some more uplifting moments, designed to get us through dark times. The readers will be "responding" to each other's poems, with some commentary, making the session more like a "conversation" among the poets and less like individual talking heads.
