Writing Towards the Future: A Discussion and Reading by Award-winning poets Patricia Spears Jones, Megan Peak, and Laura Van Prooyen
April 29, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm CDTFree
Join three lyrically gutsy poets, each at the top of their craft, as they discuss their current work and how it is taking on the future, poem by poem—that ethereal yet continuous possibility in our lives. What questions is their poetry asking that interrogate new ways of looking at ourselves, our American culture, and society? What current hopes, despair, and losses do their poems account for and how is this transforming their vision of who we want to be in the future and how our culture will reflect this? Can praise be protest? Can new myths and images of ourselves be created? Join us for this author reading and talk to find out!
