What is Found There : A Conversation on the Poet’s Place in Today’s Society

INFO
Monday, November 11 2013

Today, we have been misled to believe that poetry is academic and difficult, and simply doesn’t have anything to do with our everyday lives. Join poets Preston HoodCynthia LowenLee Sharkey, and Betsy Sholl, along with moderator Susan Conley for a poetry reading and panel discussion about poetry’s role in society today. Should poets be observers or agitators? Is it a poet’s obligation to produce work with a social conscience? Audience questions and participation encouraged. Presented by SPACE and the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance.

Due to a performer’s possible Covid-19 exposure and rain in the forecast, the status of the July 25th Steve Gunn and William Tyler show at Greenwood Garden is unclear. We will update all ticket holders and the public on Saturday, July 24th with more information.
